This may be a silly question but.... Can you freeze a fully decorated cake? A friend wants me to make a cake for her daughter in law, her birthday is not until the 10th of this month but she wants to give it to her on the 3rd to take home???? I told her that I could have it ready for her on the 8th but she really wants to give it to her at a big cookout she is having on the 3rd!! thanks in advance!!

As long as it is wrapped well, it should be fine. I made a small anniversay cake for a friend's parents as a surprise. Turned out they were going out of town the next day, so they wrapped it, froze it and still called me with high compliments eating the thawed cake when they returned!

Frozen decorated cakes are shipped by wholesalers all the time.

You sure can. Just remember, it'll probably sweat as it thaws, so take that into consideration when doing the decorating/colors icon_smile.gif
