I hope this makes sense, I have not had good luck trying to torte a frozen cake. Do I just torte and freeze the unfilled layers individually, then crumbcoat and fill with raspberry filling later?
When is the Wedding! Congrats to your happy occasion.
Will you be using a non-perishable filling or real fruit filling (homemade)?
If I were using a perishable filling (real) which I would be using...I would not torte or fill until ready to ready to decorate. One thing for me is I do not freeze any of my cakes, at least not yet. I have always timed my baking and delivery or set-up within 24 hours of baking the cake.
Meaning if my cake is due on Saturday, I start my baking process early like 12 am before the sun comes up Friday. Then I let cool, torte, fill and crumbcoat. I like to frost cold cakes. So after I crumb coat I immediately put mine in the fridge, for me it helps to set the frosting and the filling.
A lot of people freeze, filled and torted cakes crumbcoated. You can if you choose, it's a preference per baker. I think I am one of the few people that don't freeze their cakes, but honestly you should be able to freeze if you choose to with or without it being perishable.
But if you want to torte it go ahead and just put a cake board in between the layers that are torted for easy removal. then you can add your filling once you take it out the freezer.
Hope this helps you.
TIA! You ladies are wonderful and I really appreciate the help and advise
Well, he picked the cake up on time, and then told me the plans had changed and the party was put off until sunday. Needless to say I was not a happy camper as I worryed about the cake. Told him to leave it in the box in a cool spot an I hoped for the best.
Well, he called after the party and said I was now their famiys offical baker and the cake was perfect, moist and tasted fantastic.
So, I guess Wednesday would be a good day to shoot for. Also, I have done my cupcakes a week in advance,froze them in tupperware and they have come out great and tasted like they were baked in the morning.
Just a suggestion to easy the stress of a lovely day.
