I did a search and could not find the answer. I have a groom that want's a 3D cake that will be buttercream and airbrushed. If I box, wrap and freeze. Then let come to room temp while still wrapped, will the airbrushing run?

I am going out of town and he can't find anyone else who will attempt this cake. I am going to do an experiment on a small cake this week, but wondered if anyone else has tried this and what were the results.

I have had bad luck with this. When you take a buttercream air brushed cake out of the freezer as it thaws it forms moisture beads on top and sides of the cake and the air brush runs.

Did you leave it wrapped to defrost?

I don't have an airbrush, but took a class once and used the teachers airbrush for my project. I put it in the freezer to save for my grandkids because I wouldn't see them for a week and when I took it out all the airbrush color ran.I had it in an open box covered with press and seal. Nothing was touching the cake.
