So I made my cakes Monday...and they have been in the freezer. I read on this website (which has some awesome advice and topics ... and I love it)...ok got off topic for a unthaw in the fridge and then sit out on the counter for an hour or two before decorating.... I'm going to decorate the cake tomorrow afternoon/night. What do I do with it overnight? Put it back in the fridge? Will it not dry out sitting in the fridge uncovered? Because it's such an odd shape (daisy) I have no way to cover it except with tin foil ...and I really don't want to risk hurting my designs.

ok...this is the way we do all our cakes. ... we bake several days or sometimes weeks ahead of the cakes...wrap in saran, unfilled and unstacked. The night before I am to decorate we set the cakes on the kitchen counter, covered...I do put a small slit in the saran so excess moisture does not build up while thawing and make a sticky top...The next day I just crumb coat, ice and decorate...never had a complaint about a dry cake...we do slightly underbake, a few crumbs left on toothpick. good luck

I take mine out of the freezer also and set covered on the counter to thaw. Then I fill and decorate. I have had no problems with them being dry. Good luck
