So it is now one week to the wedding - the final countdown.
My cakes are made, filled with buttercream, crumb coated, wrapped in gladwrap and then into plastic freezer bags.
I still have to do the final frosting - lemon buttercream on the lemon ones and chocolate ganache on the chocolate ones.
I read on a couple of threads that the cakes should thaw slowly - in the fridge.
My questions are;
1. Given the one week countdown - when should I take the 3 layer cakes out of the freezer into the fridge for thawing.?
2. When should I take them out of the fridge? - keeping in mind I have to do the final frosting and I am the Mother of the Bride (I don’t want to be doing anything cake related next Saturday.
3. If I do the final frosting on Friday - will there be any problem with the cakes sitting until dinner on Saturday? (I don’t want to trust the cooler on site and I don’t want the cakes to be cold).
BTW - these are separate cakes from the actual wedding cake which is strofoam- except for the cutting layer.
Hopefully that is all my questions, but more may come up or you may think about something I haven’t.
Thank you all in advance for all your great advice - both past and future!
