Forgive me as I'm sure this has been asked over and over but I'm reaaly short on time. I'm having a birthday party for my 2 year old on Saturday. I'm baking the cake using the Wilton Blue's Clues cake pan. I'm also making lots of cupcakes. I plan to decorate the cake Friday night. Should I bake today and freeze it? When should I thaw it?

Maybe take it out in the morning and decorate in the afternoon/evening...? I find it takes just a few hours for a cake to thaw... but that's just me.. icon_smile.gif

If you bake today, wrap and freeze, and take the cake out of the freezer Friday morning. Let it thaw wrapped, and it should be completely ready for you to decorate Friday night. muddpuppy is right, cakes only take a few hours to thaw.

I actually frost frozen cakes all the time, I've never had a problem doing it. I've also frosted a cake and put it back in the freezer. Probably not the right thing to do, but it's worked for me, especially if I'm in a time crunch.

Thank you all for your responses. I appreciate everyone's help. I've not done a character pan before so I sure hope it turns out good. It can't be that hard, right? icon_wink.gif
