I have a cake that i decorated for a birthday. The person that i gave it to dose not want to cut it he would like to save it as long as he can. I covered the cake with fondent and have gum paste pieces on it. Would we be able to freeze it and how long would it last with being able to eat it. thank you for all of your help.
If you take off the gumpaste pieces (they will harden rocklike so don't worry about those) and then double wrap the cake in plastic wrap, even putting it in tupperware would be a good idea then you would have a few weeks before it would get freezer burn and be inedible. Now thawing it out could make the cake too moist and make the fondant droop. It will taste ok, but not look as good as it did before freezing.
