I'm trying to work ahead for this weeks holiday parties. I'm making a chocoate cake that will be filled and frosted with ganache. Can I fill and frost it then freeze it until my party? I'd like to do it today and get it out of the way for a party on Christmas day. HELP!

Yes, you can. You might have to put the cake in a cake box and wrap that in saran wrap really well and then put it in the freezer. I know ganache freezes really well. icon_smile.gif

Never tried it, but I freeze cakes after baking and when I want to defrost, I leave it in the saran wrap/foil packaging on the counter overnight or about 12 hours. I find that opening it too soon makes for an unhappy cake.

Again, I haven't done it AFTER decorating, but I would keep it wrapped until completely thawed. Then again, i don't know how well the condensation will do sitting on top of the buttercream/fondant outside.

Do tell us how it turns out!
