My 1st wedding cake order is due next week & today i am baking cakes! My question is can i fill, crumb coat & frosted the cake & freeze it? Then 2 days before due, i will thaw frosted cake & covered in fondant? Is that possible? Anyone has done it before? What was the outcome? Please help! Thanks for ur time
if you do it that way you want to thaw it in the refrigerator
Yep....top "anniversary" tiers and frozen all the time...and kept if the freezer for a year!
I'm doing the same thing next month for my son's wedding because I am traveling 6 hours. I'm going to ice and freeze each tier a few days before leaving.
Tomsann: Have you ever done it before?
ddaigle: I am scared but I am gonna try it. Wish me luck :)
I helped a user over at CD a while ago where she had the cake completely finished and then the client postponed the event a month. She froze the finished cake and had very little problems. The thread can be found here.
yes, not very often but it will be o.k.....don't worry :)
I have only traveled with a 4-tier cake one time and my BIL carried it for me. I only want to travel with what I personally can handle...so I have been not doing 4 tier cakes. I have 3 of them in September where the bride wants to keep the top tier...so I am freezing it and traveling with the 3 tier assembled...that I am used to doing..and putting the top tier on when I get to the venue. I hate the thought of assembling onsite..I have never done it. I figured with the 6" being frozen, I can handle it better. 99% of my wedding cakes are butter cream.
