I was pleasantly suprised to find out that my chocolate / caramel frosting freezes really well. We found out yesterday afternoon that it was a friend's birthday. She invited us to dinner last night without mentioning it and another friend called to tell us it was her birthday! I had two hours to make a cake before the appointed dinner time. Went down to the local gas station and picked out a dusty box of Duncan Hines devils food cake and some chocolate chips and made two layers (in my spiffy new steel cake pans from Reny's...I love these things!!) I made too much frosting a few weeks ago and decided to try and freeze it, and so I had all this frosting that I popped into the microwave for 20 seconds and then whisked back up into spreadable shape. Spread on the cake while it was still warm (a real no-no) and then added a few flowers from one of the hanging baskets we just got from Evergreen Nursery in Searsmont.
