I have a huge order for Thursday- 39 6" cake centerpieces. I have the cakes all done and frozen. I've started crumb coating, half are done and sitting on the counter. The other half are still frozen. I'd like to finish icing them all today and re freeze them until Thursday. They are all smooth iced, so I don't want to wrap them and freeze them and botch the icing- I was thinking I'd put them in their boxes and wrap the outside of the box in plastic to keep them nice and air tight until Thursday, and not in danger of getting the icing messed up. Does that work? Anyone do this? I can't think of another way to do it, other than icing them all on Wednesday, which I'd rather not do (busy day for me). I've never done this (I almost never freeze anything, I'm not very experienced in freezer dynamics!). Any suggestions?

We've frozen cakes in the box before (double wrapped in plastic), never had a problem.

Been there, done that *MANY* times. Just pop those boxes in plastic bags and fz. They will be just fine.

Great, THANKS! Changes to my routine make me nervous. I feel like Rain-man...walking around the kitchen in circles. Gotta have the cakes in the box. Gotta have the cakes done one day before. Gotta have 39 cakes in the box one day before...

You can freeze it in the box with out any problem. I'm not sure how the freeze, thaw and refreeze would go though.
