A customer of mine requested a cake for 4/14, a Toy Story cake. Cake finished, I was pleased with the result. Customer called 2 hours before pickup and asked if I had started the cake. UH DUH! She said the party was postponed till 4/21. The cake was completed the night before. Footboard and Headboard are made of Gumpaste. The cake has been picked up, customer is pleased. But I told her she was going to have to freeze the cake, can't let it sit out for 7 days. Problem is the gumpaste is attached! To tear it off would destroy the cake. Is there anything I can tell her to avoid problems when defrosting?
Can't get pic uploaded, keeps telling me it's too big and I don't have the patience right now.

Maybe she should just keep it in the fridge. It should stay pretty fresh and then she doesn't have to worry about it defrosting into a gooey mess.

Unless the cake is very well wrapped in plastic it will dry out in the frig in that amount of time.
If it is in a cake box have her wrap it in a lg plastic bag. Might even help if it could be wrapped in plastic wrap 1st.

OP~~Read this current thread and scroll down until you come to the post and photos by Rae of Blakes Cakes. She tells you EXACTLY how to wrap, freeze and defrost a fondant cake.

Freezing a wedding cake 2 week in advance?
