I am doing a wedding cake and groom's cake for my niece for next Saturday, which means I will have a busy week. My question is about the groom's cake which is supposed to be a hard hat and tools for a pipefitter. Thanks to CC I have found good photos. I baked a 9 x 13 chocolate cake today for base. I also baked a chocolate cake in a round stainless steel bowl to practice the hard hat. After I carved, shaped and crumb coated it looks pretty good. Now I am afraid I may not be able to get the next one done as good. Should I go a head and freeze this one until say Thursday evening? Can I fully frost it (buttercream) before freezing or should I wait till it is completely thawed? Sorry this got a little long. I am trying to get what baking I can done early. I will freeze the smaller cake layers plain then thaw.
Thanks for any advice. icon_confused.gif

Definitely you can fz it icon_smile.gif You can even frost it if you want.
To fz it completely iced, put it in the fzr UNwrapped for about an hour, then take & wrap it in plastic wrap or a plastic bag. To thaw, remove wrapping.
For plain cake layers, wrap before fzing and thaw still wrapped.
