I am planning to bake & freeze as mine is going to be 5 cakes, am I best baking, leveling & freezing or baking, freezing and leveling when I defrost or it doesn't matter?
I have usually baked, frozen and then leveled once defrosted.
Thanks May, the comment I read about rainbow cakes is that they tend to sort of fall apart - what with all the layers and icing, I'm concerned the icing will melt and the layers will become soggy or something.
One recipe I read said something about freezing the cakes but I can't find it again, and another one i found doesn't say anything about it. Does anyone freeze their layers?
I baked my cakes the day before the party as they were buttercakes, then just assembled the cake with buttercream in between layers and over the top. I didn't have any issues with crumbling or them getting soggy... so i'm not sure what that's about.
This was how my kids cake turned out when it was cut, not soggy at all or overly crumbly, nothing more than what a normal buttercake would be.
