I pulled out my cakes from the freezer last night, in preparation for a cake for Sunday. I just got a call that the party on Sunday will need to be rescheduled.

Can I re-freeze my cakes? I would HATE to have to throw all that work away.

Please help!

I think you're going to have to re-bake... sorry.

If you got a (non-refundable) deposit, eat them/give them away but don't refreeze. You need to let the customer know that you have to rebake their cakes and that they will need to cover the cost of this (ingredients & your time for shopping/baking etc). Why should you be out of pocket for something that is not your fault?!

I would and have done so before with no ill effects.

Good luck!

Thanks everyone!

Well, luckily for me, it turns out the event is still on. It's supposed to rain here on Sunday and the mom was panicking about getting an indoor venue for her son's BD party.

Thank goodness I didn't have to throw any of the cakes away. It would have been really painful..LOL!
