frostings
by: Anonymous

Hi Lorelie,
I want to make a cake with layers of mocha genache and mousse chocolate frostings. Since i have to slice cake in 3 layers, can i freeze the cake (so it's easier to slice it) and frost it while its frosen. Will it change it's consistency/flav? Can it stay out in room temp from am to pm. ( i been making genache, keeping without refrig. for 2days, since i boile the cream-is it ok, how long can it stay out?) I never made mousse frosting can that sit am to pm? If not i will have to use merengue buttercream.
Thank you!

Yes yes and yes

Yes you can freeze the cake first and slice it. And yes you can fill and frost it while it is frozen. I freeze most of my cakes and as long as they are wrapped well and frozen for a short time (1 to 2 weeks) your cakes will be fine. If you use a mousse filling keep the cakes in the refrigerator for as long as possible until you are ready to deliver and set up.

Crusted Buttercream icing
by: Anonymous

Hello, I am new here to your site. My question is I made a fresh batch of crusted buttercream do I need to refrig it or can it stay out at room temp. Covered and sealed?

Buttercream
by: Lorelie

Hi You can leave your buttercream out for a day covered in plastic wrap in a cool spot if necessary. You can also refrigerate it and when you are ready to use it, thaw and re mix. You may have to microwave it for a few seconds to help soften. Always safer to refrigerate, just a little bit more work thawing and remixing.
