Forgot to freeze wedding cake........
I left someone in charge of freezing the top tier of my wedding cake and came home from my honeymoon 9 days later to find it uncovered in my fridge. Can I still freeze it to save it for our 1 year anniversary?
Hi Erica, First of all Congratulations on your marriage! It depends on what type of cake it is and the kind of filling. If it was carrot cake or even my moist chocolate cake recipe ,I would say yes it should be ok. I know that those two cakes are very hardy and actually get better with a little aging.
Not knowing all of the circumstances, such as how hot it was and how long the cake sat out etc. you really don't want to take a chance on it being spoiled.
If the filling was delicate such as a chocolate mousse recipe with egg yolks, than again its iffy. A buttercream or ganache or cream cheese filling can withstand more.
Can you have the cake person bake you another small topper and freeze that one instead or have one made for you fresh on your anniversary?
I think I would probably go that route. Can you get back to us in your anniversary and let us know what you did? It would help other brides in the future with similar circumstances.
