Bringing back cold cake cream
To use Cake Cream that has been in the fridge or freezer, it will need to come back to room temperature and warmed gently in the microwave. 1kg of Cake Cream warmed in the microwave for no more than 20 secs, 10-15 sec can also work well depending on your microwave. Do this in small bursts as all microwaves are different.
