I've got a BUNCH of sheet cakes for a wedding ( YUK) coming up..... can I decorated them and then freeze them ? How about just a crumb coat ? It sure would cut down some time for me...... has anyone done it...... OH, they will be butter cream...... no fillings....... ( I hate this order!) LOL!

I had a cake that I frosted in buttercream and decorated with brush emboidery, then didn't need it. Since it was extra, I experimented on it to see how it would freeze. I left it in it's box, and overwrapped the box with saran wrap and threw it in the freezer. I was able to unwrap it a week, week and a half later, and it was fine. We actually had it for mother's day, and my MIL didn't know that it had been frozen icon_smile.gif

I have kept one in the freezer for a week. It was fully decorated with fondant and gumpaste details and it keep perfectly. I put it in a cake saver, then left it in there down in a cool basement to thaw.
