I have a monster wedding cake (288 servings) this weekend and one of the tiers calls for a fresh starwberry filling. I need to get as much of this baked, decorated and into the freezer as early as I can because I work a fulltime job. I was wondering if I can go ahead and bake, decorate, and freeze the cake with the fresh cut starwberry filling? When the cake thaws will the starwberries be mushy?

Anyone with any edvice/experience on this one?

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but strawberries are something like 99% water. They will break down when fzn & get very, very mushy icon_sad.gifCan you do all the other tiers done? Certainly you can bake ahead and fz the layers.

If I were you I would bake and decorate all cakes but this one. I would decorate it the last one. Either that or sieve the fresh strawberries and mix them with italian buttercream (delish) now you can fill/decorate/freeze your cake. I use fruits mixed with butter cream for most of my cakes.

Thanks for the responses. I think you've given good advice- I will bake and decorate all other layers and save the one with fresh starwberries last.

Thanks again!
