Hello again everyone. One of my clients wants me to make him 2 cakes for Christmas Eve but I told him I was going away on the 15th until the new year. He still wants me to make them and said to freeze them. He wants one with fondant and one with just buttercream both decorated. Does anybody freeze their cakes already decorated? Will the colors change once it comes to room temperature? What could go wrong? Here are the two cakes he wants.

I am thinking, and this is theory only because I have not tried it, that if you box and seal the cakes before you freeze them, then let them come to room temp still sealed, condensation should be kept to a minimum, if at all, so the painting would not be damaged.  Perhaps you should try painting a scrap of fondant and freezing it to see how it holds up.

Thank you so much SandraSmiley. And my apologies on the duplicate. It's not allowing me to delete.

I froze 2 decorated cakes - 1 buttercream and 1 fondant - and drove from Texas to California with them.  Once there, I put the buttercream in the fridge for the wedding the next day and left the fondant one in the freezer for 3 more days until graduation.  They both turned out great - - moist as ever and no condensation problems since they defrosted still wrapped in their boxes.

They should be just fine.  Good luck.

Don't apologize for the duplication, Pucci!  It is another glitch in this site.

That is great to know, cakefan92!  As I said, my idea was theory only so it is nice to have confirmation!

defrost gradually is the key -- from the freezer to the fridge -- then to room temp -- all nice & gradual -- like cakefan & sandra said
