Ok. So I've been reading threads for about 30 min now and Im convinced that even though I think I have my answer...I dont have my answer! LOL
So, I've made 2-6", 2-8" and 2-10" cakes, put them into the freezer. Now, I will be decorating them tomorrow for a party Sunday evening. So today, Im going to go ahead and start making and coloring the fondant and icing and refrigerate. So my questions are...
When do i remove the cakes from the freezer to defrost? Our house stays pretty cool, BUT we adhere to our electric company's suggestion to not use major appliance from 2pm to 7pm M-F and it costs more to do so if we do. So the air it set to about 80 degrees and could get a bit warm in the kitchen. How is that going to effect my cakes and icing and fondant?
Once I make the icing and fondant is it ok to leave it sitting out all night? or does it go to refrigerate?
I make cakes for my kids birthday each year, but this year I plan for it to not be last minute. Im always up till 1am finishing up on a cake the day of the party...not this time i say!!! So I baked all my cakes (except 1 layer...have to redo because it fell completely apart), wrapped them and put them in the freezer. Im anxious to get them out for some reason. Plan to do fondant and icing today, then put it all together all day tomorrow....be in bed by 10pm! HA.
Oh and last question....I am aware this cake will be heavy...three tiers. I usually just put them on regular boards that I get at the cake deco place, like what bakeries use for their cakes. I got 2-12" boards (to have the bottom a bit bigger to put happy birthday on) and plan to glue them together to make a thicker board. So do you thing that will be sufficient enough to hold all my tiers?
Thanks to all!
