You can definately frost and then freeze the cake, I do it all the time (never have used store bought icing tho, I'm sure it'll still work) - the cake to ice cream ratio is based on preference. I'd torte the 9x13 cake and make an ice cream layer the same thinkness as each layer of cake. Good luck with your cake! icon_smile.gif

A customer wants an ice cream filled cake, but its going to be covered in fondant. Is this possible?I feel if i put the fondant cake in the freezer it will be extremely hard and if i put it in the fridge the ice cream will make the cake soggy. If anyone has ever done this or has any pointers i'd greatly appreicate it.

You need to think that whatever icing you cover the cake in will be served frozen. Butter-based buttercream - ick. Whipped cream - yum. Just try freezing a little of the icing you'd like to use and then see how it is to cut and eat it.

I agree with Kory. I would hate eating regular BC that's been frozen. I would also use a whipped cream-ish recipe.
