Defrosting Cake

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I usually bake cakes the day before, but this time I froze the layers and wrapped them in saran wrap.  Should I defrost them with or without the saran wrap on them?

I would like to know that too. I froze them for the first time. Also, how long do you defrost before you torte and fill them?

Okay, I found this link.  Seems I am not out of line in my confusion, because it's done both ways..

I am going to leave mine wrapped, will be decorating tomorrow and delivering Thursday.

Defrost with the saran wrap so that any condensation collects on the wrap and not on the cake.

 

As to how long, this will depend on the kind cake and on the size/thickness.

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

How perfect is the timing for this thread?!?! I'm just about to go take my layers out of the freezer. 

 

Thanks norasmom for the link:)
