Thankful to be ahead, can I take it out now?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I baked my cakes over the weekend because I am a teacher full time and just didn't have the time. My cake is due Sunday and I wanted to have it stacked and mostly completed by Saturday. I wanted to know can I take my cakes out of the freezer today or should I wait until tomorrow?

I wanted to fill and ice tomorrow and I have read on here that I should give them 24 hours in the refrigerator before icing? Will the cake still be fresh? Thanks for your help.

Well, it depends on your icing and your fillings. If they don't require refrigeration--the ones that I use don't---you can let them defrost today.

I defrost in the fridge, when possible, and then allow to come most of the way to room temp before filling. I torte, fill, and crumb coat, and then allow to settle--at room temp---for at least 4 hrs. and longer if I can. I don't re-freeze or re-refrigerate. I then finish ice and decorate.

I do not plan on putting them back in the refrigerator after they defrost. The cake is due Sunday at 1pm, so I do want to allow time for the cakes to settle before I cover them with fondant on Saturday.

Rae- how long do they need to stay in the fridge?

Forgot to say that none of my filling or icings require refrigeration.

My 2" layers defrost overnight in the fridge and then take about 1/2 an hour on the counter before I torte & fill.

Thanks so much for your help Rae!! When you let them sit on the counter, do you unwrap them?

Yes, I unwrap them or they get sticky.

So that's why I get sticky tops when I freeze them. Even when I unwrap them as soon as I take them out of the fridge is there something else I can do?
