Customer canceled due to death in the family. It's a white cake w. lemon curd and crumbcoated. No fondant on yet. What do I do to save it? If put in freezer, will it dry out? How do I package it? Thanks for your help.

You could wrap it in several layers of plastic wrap and freeze. I would only save it for a couple weeks that way, but thats me. I would just feed it to the family or as a nice gesture you could ice it with little decoration and take it to the customer. They would probably appreciate it during a difficult time.

Wrap in plastic, then in foil. It will be fine for a few weeks.

Freeze it first and when it's hard wrap in plastic wrap and it will keep for at least a week if not more.

I like the idea of just icing it with little decoration and giving it to the family that lost their loved one.

thanks for your input. I asked my customer right away if they'd like it and they said no as it was meant for a celebration instead. Mother's Day is next weekend, so I could give it to someone then. It's a cake for 50 servings too. I've frozen cakes before but not when it has been filled. I wondered if it would be too moist inside or the filling would taste funny.

I have frozen filled cakes. Never had a problem. Good Luck.
