I had a party cake planned for today that got moved last night to a week later. I had taken the cakes out of the freezer and crumb coated them before I got the call. They were still a bit frozen. I put saran on them, foiled and bagged them and put them in the freezer again. Did I do the right thing? Will the cakes still be good to use next week? If yes, do I just thaw them in the saran like I usually do even though they now have a layer of frosting on them? I hate to have to rebake them. Please help!

Yes they should be fine. I had a order that the lady had sent a e-mail for one date and then on the phone told me it was later.....so glad I had the e-mail to prove she was the loony one!! I had already baked and put the buttercream on it - luckily not the fondant! I did what you did then took them out and left them wrapped to thaw and had no problems or complaints icon_smile.gif

I typically tort, fill, & crumb coat before I freeze - you just did an extra step of freezing in-between! As long as you wrapped them well, they'll be fine!
