I am very new at this so this is kind of a dumb question...I am going to be making a cake using stabilized whipped cream and have to make it ahead of time, i only have room to store it in my freezer. would this work?
I use Pastry Pride or bettercream for my cakes and I freeze the pastry pride already whipped without a problem.
You can freeze real whipped cream, but the flavor changes. It tastes a little sour when defrosted.
It does change the texture a little bit...I usually only freeze it in slices after we've had the ceremonial cutting!
ok thank you guys very much for your help. i would hate to serve a cake that tastes sour
You can not freeze real whipped cream. It will separate and you won't be able to rewhip it to consistency. It looks curdled when you defrost it. You're better off using Rich's Bettercream.
Ok, so I'm doing a mad hatter crooked cake for my daughter's birthday and when I've done that style before I just used a flavored buttercream filling because I knew it could stand up to being frozen, carved & fondant covered but I haven't done one in a loooong time and gave been using whip cream +pudding mix fillings lately. I know the whip cream wouldnt hold up to the freezing so would Pastry Pride? It sounds like it might. I would just bite the bullet and do it but I really don't want to deal with a disaster for my baby's first bday(not to mention I have a reputation to maintain with my family and friends lol!)Thanks in advance!
