To Catch A Cook: How to Defrost Wedding Cake
Instead of a recipe, here is a practical how-to today. We celebrated our one year wedding anniversary this past weekend and of course had to figure out how to defrost our cake topper! If I had looked into this a little more closely last year, I would have known to follow a bunch of steps to keep the cake as fresh as possible. But let’s be serious – the last thing on your mind the day after your wedding before you leave for the honeymoon is a cake preservation project. I literally put it in a Tupperware and it sat in the freezer for the past year. And you know what? It tasted just great, thank you Martha Stewart Tupperware! However, I did some research and here are some steps for freezing and defrosting wedding cake:
1. Place the fresh cake in the refrigerator until morning so the butter cream will harden.
2. Cover the cake in layers of plastic wrap then with an outer layer of tin foil (airtight seal).
3. Wait a year.
4. Place the cake (still wrapped) in the refrigerator overnight.
5. Remove it from the wrapping and let it sit out for a few hours to reach room temperature.
6. Pour some bubbly, look over wedding pictures and enjoy your cake!
