So I am making a cake for a friend. I used IndyDebs bc recipe. I have used in the past and no problems. I used again today on frozen cakes that were crumb coated and then frozen. I put the top coat of icing on but it does not seem to be crusting. Did I do something wrong in the freezing process? Or will it finally crust after the cake is completely thawed?

TIA!!! icon_cry.gif

Moisture is condensing on the cold cake keeping it from crusting. When the cake thaws and the icing has a chance to lose that extra moisture, it should be okay.
