There has been a winter storm in my city and I have to postpone a fundraiser that was scheduled for this saturday. The main problem is that spent half my day yesterday baking cakes for it.

The new date will probably be 3 weeks to a month from now, so my question is how long will those cakes last in the freezer?

I would really prefer not to waste them, but i don't want to serve people junk either.

What would your advice be for after they come out of the freezer? I have heard things about condensation making decorating hard.

Help!

are they already iced and decorated?? if so, what type of icing, fondant, and colors and type of decorations did you use?

I just froze a fondant covered cake (with Michele Foster's fondant) and my customer raved about the taste (it was a friend and the actual date was never discussed and so the cake was made a week before the event!). I think as long as you wrap it up properly it should be fine. Just make sure you remove any gumpaste decorations if you have any! By the way...this is one time that I'm glad that I'm in MB and not AB!!

Right now they are just unfrosted un-anything cakes.

So in a month when i take them out, should i let them defrost completely?

I think that you will be ok. They don't have to thaw completely.

I'm glad to know that I can freeze a cake covered with MFF. I have a 10 inch left over from a birthday party and we're sick of cake. I'll freeze it and take it to our next pot luck at church icon_biggrin.gif
