I have a very simple fondant covered (Satin Ice) cake decorated with satin ribbon. The party has been moved to next weekend but the cake is already finished. Can I freeze the cake somehow? I can take the ribbon off and reapply it after thawing???

I see a lot of folks say freeze the cake in the box and take it out to thaw IN THE BOX UNTOUCHED the day before you need it and there'll be no problems. Me, I'd slice the fondant off, freeze, then re-decorate.

The more I search the forums, I think you can freeze and thaw successfully. My only debate now is whether to thaw in the saran wrap or remove the wrap prior to thawing. I've seen people post about both methods.

As is mentioned in the above attached thread, thawing wrapped in the box keeps the moisture out so you don't get condensation on the cake. If you can do it this way you should be perfectly fine.

Hi, this is what BlakesCakes(c/cer) has to say about this subject. I cannot find the old thread. But i wrote it down. You box completed cake. Wrap with 2 layers of saran wrap , and one layer of foil. Freeze. 24 hrs. before displaying , place in fridge still boxed and wrapped At least 2 hrs. before serving , place still boxed and wrapped cake on counter. when ready to eat, remove wrapping.She shows her cakes that she does like this. They are very pretty. hth
