I know that I've read this somewhere in forums but for the life of me, can't find information..
I plan to begin making my layers for a wedding cake tonite then freezing them. My question is :
I read that you should let cakes settle to avoid buldging between the layers.
When and how do you let the cakes settle? After freezing, thawing, torting and filling, before crumb coating? Or did I just sorta answer my own question? And how long do you let it settle?
All of your steps are right on. You can crumb coat if you want since it will be "touched up" with the final coat of icing.
I take them out of the freezer, fill and crumbcoat then let settle and come to room temp for at least 3 hours. Then smooth out any buldge and continue the decorating process. Works every time!
Thanks Ladies! You're the best!
