Trying to do my son's birthday cake in steps to work with my schedule. Can I bake the cake, torte it and then stack the layers with buttercream between them and then wrap and freeze the whole thing? I've seen how to freeze uniced cake layers and even fully decorated cakes, but I want to know if I can do something in between? No crumb coat necessary in the final product, so it would just be the cake layers and the buttercream between them. Would that work? Advice? Thanks!

I've never done this but it sounds like a fine idea to me. I froze a cake that I had layered and crumb coated, I frosted it while it was frozen and that gave me some big problems like cake farts (as someone here told me aha). So I would just let it thaw completely before frosting because they expand as they thaw. I'm sure someone who really know what they're talking about will comment as well, that's all I got.

Definitely   If a whole decorated cake can be fzn a filled one can as long as the filling withstands fz’ing which b’cteam does

I don’t ice fzn cake -had problems doing that so thaw it a couple of hours   I usually would put in the frig overnight to thaw

They freeze perfectly, when well wrapped, with the buttercream filling in place, without a crumb coat.  I've frozen them this way frequently, but my favorite way is to go ahead and crumb coat to save more time down the road.  Like kakeladi, I thaw my cakes in the refrigerator overnight, still wrapped.
