So i was busting my hump trying to get a cake done. I started to defrost my cakes, they were out for about 2 hours, not completely thawed yet. I realized my cake was not due until next Friday. So I put them back in the freezer. Do I need to rebake them, or will they be ok? Also i made buttercream. butter, sugar and water. How long will that last???
I think the cakes would be fine but someone else might know better on that.. the frosting will be fine you can refridgerate it and I ususally put it back in my mixer for a minute or two before use if I don't have time to let it come to room temp on its own
yes, your cakes will be fine. I freeze icing all the time. Then i rebeat it with my spatula, when i go to use it.hth
I feel for you! At least you were off by a week early and not the other way around!
Well that's good to hear. I was able to fit my johnny tractor topper in a zip lock bag. it's rice krispy treats and fondant. Will that still be good next week, if I leave it at room temp for them to eat? Should i freeze the icing along with the cakes, or just leave it in the fridge? Thanks guys!!!!
Freeze the cakes and icing. Refrigerating will just case the cake to dry out and go stale. I thaw and refreeze cakes all the time and they're as moist and delicious as the day I baked them. You don't want to go in and out with the same cake too many times, tho. The quality will begin to deteriorate.
Open up that ziploc bag a little. Storing fondant airtight can cause it to soften and wilt.
