I'm new at this! Can you ice and decorate a cake while it is still frozen. I am using "stabalized"whipped cream icing. Any hits of advice? Thanks

Here's a few tips I have found out through trial and error as I am self-taught. I wouldn't cut the cake frozen especially with a cake leveller but you might be able to with a sharp serrated knife. It is a lot easier to ice the cake when it is frozen. HTHicon_smile.gif

I am starting to do all my cakes either frozen or refrigerated for a day or so - it's MUCH easier to cut (I always use a giant serrated knife) and it doesn't crumble as much when icing.

What I tend to do is take the cake out of the freezer about an hour or so before I plan to work on it, to give it time to thaw enough so I CAN cut through it. But that's all the time I allow, then I just start working!
