I am doing a Topsy Turvy and this is the first time for freezing my cakes before hand. I usually dont have to freeze but do to time etc I had no choice. I also heard that freezing them actually makes them easier to carve.

Soooo I guess my question is since I am dealing with frozen cakes should I carve then fill then crumbcoat? Or carve, fill back in....Or....

Oi I swear I am not slow this is just a different situation and I feel like I am having a brain dead moment icon_razz.gif

I fill and freeze (not solid) then carve and let the cake come to room tempature before crumbcoating. I don't ice a frozen or really cold cake. It only takes 30 minutes or so for it to thaw. I have problems with my buttercream crusting if I use it on a cold or frozen cake.

Awesome thanks icon_biggrin.gif After I do that should it stay out of the fridge or be put back in? Since it was prior frozen it shouldnt matter right? Just continue like normal?

I NEVER refrigerate my cakes. The only time I've ever had issues with a cake is when I put one in the fridge. Unless it has a perishable filling there isn't a need to.
