Hi guys! I have a cake order that will be picked up this Friday at 5pm. This order consists of 3 cakes. Each of them will be sculpted. They will only be about 6 inches each but I have a two year old running around and limited time to get things done. My plan was to bake the cakes, cool them, torte, fill, sculpt and then freeze them for a couple of days. Then I would crumb coat them, apply the fondant and finish them the day before. Do you think that would work or would freezing a filled cake (just buttercream) result in a mooshy mess when defrosted? Any suggestions are welcomed and THANK YOU in advance!

AI have done this successfully with chocolate buttercream sponge. Just make sure the middle is fully defrosted before finishing.

Freeze away!  Bake, torte, fill, crumb, wrap like crazy in saran, and freeze.  Remove to counter, keep wrapped to completely defrost, cover.  You can do it!

I concur! Just make sure you wrap a Layer of foil over the cling wrap! The foil keeps other food smells/tastes out of your cake. :)
