Freezing Your Cake

For many years it has been tradition to freeze the top tier of the wedding cake and eat it during your one year anniversary. To do this is a simple process.

1. Put the unwrapped top tier in the freezer for 3-4 hours to harden the icing and decorations.

2. Remove and wrap the cake in 2-3 layers of plastic wrap.

3. To protect the cake place it inside a bakery box, then to seal the box you just wrap the whole thing with several more layers of plastic wrap.

Caution: Cakes with a custard filling are not recommended because the filling could separate.

Place the cake back in the freezer; be sure to put it in a spot where it doesn't need to be moved. Remember this cake will be in the freezer for a year. Avoid using a Frost-Free Freezer is not recommended because that process will dry out your cake too much.

When the time comes the defrost process is easy to do as well.

1. Remove the cake box from the freezer and unwrap the plastic wrap.

2. Immediately remove the plastic wrap from the cake so the icing won't stick to the plastic when it thaws. Put in refrigerator to thaw for 48 hours, sit out at room temperature for 2-3 hours.

3. If you like, you can skip the first part of the directions and thaw it at room temperature until completely thawed out.

4. Congratulations, Enjoy your cake like the first time you tasted it on that special day.
