Hi Everyone,

I'm doing my first wedding cake (for family) with pastry pride.  I'm curious if anyone has frozen a decorated pastry pride cake (unwrapped) overnight and then set up and let it thaw at the venue?  If not and you just refrigerate it, how long are you able to let it set out at the wedding?  I'm just concerned that if it's not cold enough it may not be able to be on display for several hours.  Any advice is appreciated.  Thanks everyone!

I have made many cakes - both special occasion and wedding with Frostin Pride.  It is highly recommended instead of Pastry Pride.  (At least many years back when I was using it. Don't know if the formula has changed any.)  I do not ever remember fzing any *before* an event but have fzn leftovers.  Personally I think the PP changes taste/consistency if applied more than 8-12 hrs before consumming.   To me it becomes very greasy and 'flat' tasting.   And if it has been over-whipped it will crack.   Any chance you can completely ice and decorate this cake the morning of the wedding?  PP is much like b'cream as for keeping qualities.  It almost never spoils so it will display just fine for several hours unless it is hot/in the sun.   I definately recommend keeping it cold (refrig'd) as long as possible before displaying.
