I have a wedding cake to set up at 4pm this afternoon. I have a 12" chocolate layer out of the oven...yep, last minute...can I pop it into the fridge to speed the cooling down process, or will it cause cracking??? I'm in a major time jam... Any suggestions???

turn out of pan.
immediately wrap in plastic wrap
back into pan
and into FREEZER....very fast chill and should stay in one piece.

Doug, you ARE a lifesaver! No more of me taking on so many orders at one time. It doesn't help that my mixer just blew. Goodbye hand mixers....hello commerical mixer!

Not a last minute baker, just baked vanilla instead of chocolate fudge layer! Yikes! It's not even 3pm, and thankfully, I'm loading up and ready to go for my 4pm set up. Thanks everyone!!!

Doug and everyone, thanks again for the last-minute life saving!!! I am posting a picture of the finished cake. I love this board!!! I'm going to add the picture to my photos. The cake is the one with the red rose petals on each of the three tiers.
