AI foil wrapped my cake first before cling wtapping it. Will this ruin my cake???
No. that's what I do. BUT don't do it whilst a cake is fresh out of the oven or the moisture will make it stick to the foil.
AThank god for that. I just made 28 cakes and was thinking if doing it all over again. I really wish the humid summer here in Sydney won't make my cake to collapse due to condensation. How do you thaw them before icing the cakes?
Well I just bring them out of the freezer....leave them until they are nearly thawed out and then cut them whilst they are still a little bit chilled. That way I have more control over them. I use the fridge to layer and crumb coat them so that they set up nicely and don't squirm around, then I usually ganache and leave in the fridge. By the time I bring them out of the fridge and let them sit to get to room temp...they are already ganached and ready to cover with fondant.
Some people get a little shirty about freezing cakes. I, personally believes it helps to retain the moisture in them.
AThanks, but do you take off the wrapping straight away after bringing it out of the freezer to thaw? Sounds like your from Australia as well..
Sorry Filo...I went awol.
I usually keep them wrapped til they are mostly defrosted but I cut and layer them whilst they are still a little bit stiff. that way they cut really cleanly and I don't have cake crumbling everywhere. By the time I've layered and filled and covered them they are usually completely defrosted. xx
I always thaw in the wrapper.
i unwrap immediately and brush off the frozen bits of condensation before they melt back into my cake--and i ice it immediatelyÂ too--
--too many ways to do it huh-
