a bride wants chocolate cake with bavarian cream filling and is planning to freeze the top layer to eat at the year anniversary. i use the bav. cream from the sleeve. i have froze it alone in a baggie before and as i recall it was all runny after it thawed. will it be ok after the bride thaws it out or will it taste yucky and be all runny?
does anyone have any input on this at all? really looking for an answer so if it won't work i can tell the bride to either pick a different filling or just not freeze the top layer. thanks again.
I honestly couldn't eat the top tier of my wedding cake that was wrapped, covered and frozen for a year, and that was with buttercream filling.
Sorry, I can't be of any help on how the filling would last for a year.
I also tried freezing bavarian cream from a sleeve, and when it defrosted it was disgusting. I wouldn't freeze it in a cake.
Bavarian cream does not defrost well. I wouldn't recommend using it in the top layer if the bride wants to freeze it.
I would do the top layer in a butter cream.....
I suggest to the bride to use only buttercream on the cake that she plans to freeze. I have not had good luck freezing bavarian - it has come out sticky and thick
