Mum asked me to bake a cake for tomorrow, since we are having company. It is a simple bundt cake that will be frosted with chocolate icing.
Mom thought I should do some really simple pink flowers on top of the brown... I was just going to do apple blossoms or something? Do you have any other suggestions?
Anways..... I don't want to take the chance to ruin another cake by putting flowers on it and then it ending up aweful.
So, I was going to do the flowers on a practice sheet, freeze them for a few hours, and then randomly place them around the cake...
Will freezing them make them taste bad or melt?????
Are you making them with buttercream or what?
I didn't want to possible ruin the cake by piping flowers directly on..... if the ones i freeze turn out bad, I don't have to put them on and can leave the cake plain..................
Will freezing them make them taste bad or melt?
No freezing them won't make them taste bad, but they will return to soft and wet/limp when thawed. This shouldn't be too much of a problem for what you're trying to do with flat flowers if you're placing them flat where they don't need to hold a shape.
However, for buttercream roses that need to hold their shape, you should air dry them in advance.
