Best ways to defrost a cake?

momnivore | Dec 13, 201005:25 AM

For an upcoming desserts and cocktails party, I have baked several desserts in the past two weeks and frozen them (a red velvet cake, a chocolate chip cookie pie, cheese cake, mini pumpkin muffins, and a chocolate macaroon bundt). I waited until they were all completely cool before wrapping them first in 2 layers of press and seal (kind of like saran wrap) then 2 layers of alum. foil. The party is on Saturday night. Do I pull them out on Saturday and put them on the counter? Pull them out on Friday and put them in the fridge? Do I defrost them with or without the foil/wrap? And finally is it easier to ice/top any of them right after they come out of the freezer or would that just make a mess? Thanks!
