Has anyone filled and frosted a tres leches cake decorated in butter cream? This is the recipe I use. It doesn't make the cake soggy like a normal tres leches just moist. Do you think I could successfully freeze and thaw once frosted?

I wouldn't do it. That cake, for all intents & purposes, IS soaked.

Water (and water based things like milks) expands when frozen. This alters the composition of the solids in the recipe.

I think you'd wind up with a VERY unsatisfactory product once defrosted--it could wind up being cake soup---yuck.

Thank you. I was just hoping to save some time. My brother called at the last minute and wanted me to make a baby shower cake for a neighbor for the same week and gave me a guilt trip after I already explained that I had ten cakes to bake and decorate plus work full time. I had to turn him down. Felt bad but I am still working on gumpaste flowers and don't need anymore stress. So glad I only do this for friends I couldn't do this everyday. I don't know how you ladies and gents do this for a living. I would be bald from stress.
