....frozen a fondant covered cake. The reason I ask is I made a birthday cake and the day it was due to be picked up I found out the woman was in the hospital because she had been assualted. I offered to deliver it to the hospital if she was ok but no one ever got back to me. I thought if I could freeze it I would still be able to give it to her once she is healed. I appreciate feedback if anyone has ever tried this. Thanks.
Yes, my mom freezes at least half of every cake I make for her, and she'll pull the cake out and thaw it a month later and it still looks and tastes fine. I use MMF, don't know if that makes a difference in how it handles freezing.
I believe if you search the forum that this has been discussed, but most people say yes it can and just needs time to defrost.
What type/brand of fondant did you use?
You can freeze the cake.. but defrosting becomes tricky if you've used a medium of color that might run so when defrosting place it in the fridge from the freezer & let it defrost there for a bit & then take it out to room temp... :0)
Sorry to here about your client will put her in my prayers....
Thanks everyone for your input. The cake has some red Satin Ice fondant as well as MMF. I'm going to try and freeze it.....we'll see what happens!
