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.
Thank you! I will let her know and keep my fingers crossed!
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?
Thank you all! Good info.
