I know this info is on this awesome site somewhere but I am having problems finding it. Please point me in the right direction. I need info on freezing a cake and if it should thaw before the final coat of icing. All info I can get about frezing. I want to bake it this week-end and decorate in the middle of the week.

I freeze all of my cakes. They will actually last quite awhile in the freezer if wrapped well. You will need to let them thaw and settle before decorating. I usally let mine sit for a few hours wrapped in plastic wrap to thaw out. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

I think people are having better luck googling cake central and the subject.

I learned about the merits of freezing from this site.

They DO NOT have to be thawed before adding icing. I freeze all my cakes before decorating, it's make them easier to decorate & they are so much more moist. If you are adding fondant, ice the cake then allow it to thaw before putting your fondant on.

Does this apply to buttercream too? Thanks so much.

Any icing is fine to put on a frozen cake. You just don't want to add fondant before the iced cake has had time to thaw, it will make your fondant gummy.
