Can I put cake with thin buttercream frosting in the fridge
Cakes Thawing in The Fridge
I am making my daughters wedding cake, and I will be making the cakes a month prior to the event, splitting them in two and freezing them. Three days before the wedding I intend to de-frost them, fill them, and cover with a thin butter-cream frosting. This will be two days before the wedding; can I at this stage put them in the fridge? I intend to cover them with fondant icing the day before the wedding. Answer
Great question! The answer is yes! Just wrap them in plastic wrap for extra protection from odors.
Also may I suggest that you fill them after baking and cooling, crumb coat, wrap well in plastic and then freeze them. It's a whole lot easier that way. When you defrost a cake all the way and try to work with it it is soft and difficult to work with.
