Help! I made my cake tooo early!

I got my dates mixed up and made a wedding cake one week too early! icon_cry.gif What do I do?? Would it keep if I keep it in the fridge on high or is that just outta the question!?!?!?

Do you have enough freezer space for all the cakes? I'm sure the cake will be fine if frozen and then thawed while decorating a couple days before.

tell us what kind you made ,etc. i did the same thing one time. froze it for a week. the recepient didn,t know the difference. it was 9x13. american buttercream. it even had red roses on it and they didn,t bleed. i guess i was lucky. so what kind did you make?

I completed it! Its a 3 tiered stacked set of gift boxes with jewelry accessories etc....all assembled. One red velvet layer, one yellow, one strawberry cake. The fillings are cream cheese, dulce de leche and plain buttercream. Will all that fondant keep the cake inside fresh if its just in the fridge? Or do I spend the next week completing the same cake? I dont want the freshness compromised at all.

mm, it should be fine in the fridge if it's all covered in fondant. Any way of keeping it in a box too, to help protect it from fridge odours and accidental damage?

I don't know...Because it is for a wedding and it's a week away....I wouldn't compromise the quality or your reputation by sending out a week old cake when the error was yours.I would rebake and decorate next week when it is due.If it was a smaller party cake or something that may be different.

Its so ginormous the box would never fit in there too. Currently all shelves are out and there are only a couple of cans of soda that fit in there too. I've got like 3 bowls of baking soda in there too. I'm a nervous wreck! Will it dry out???

Well..I don't do alot of fondant covered cakes but the few I have done the fondant got quite hard when I refridgerated it but like I said I don't think it ruined the taste of the cake inside...or at least the customer never mentioned or complained..Maybe someone with more experience with fondant can chime in....

Hate to suggest it.. but maybe you should take it apart and freeze each separate tier. I've never frozen fondant. Honestly, if it were me I would salvage as much as I could such as decorations and re-bake next week. I think a week is way to long to sit around. icon_sad.gif

I have done that before with a cupcake cake..Made it for the wrong date as well and tried to freeze it cause it took forever to all the details..When it thawed the airbrushing beaded ontop so I had to try and cover that up but at least I found out what not to do!!

I would rebake...to be safe...lots of work but you will sleep better.

Depends on the fondant. Satin Ice will freeze. It's one of the things they advertise all the time.

Refrigeration dries out cake. it's a relative humidity thing. Actually you should never put a cake into the fridge unless it has a perishable filling and you have no choice, or if you can control the humidity and you know exactly what you're doing.
