    'Maid of honour cakes' are made with puff pastry, traditionally filled with cheese curd. Should not be frozen. Puff pastry does not freeze well after being baked.

    Gotcha. I had heard of the grooms cake, a more southern USA custom that hasn't made it across the 49th (At least in the west), but this was a new one. It sounds like a fun tradition.

    Tickle. I got that the first time. I understand it is a British custom. I grok. I was mentioning that, while not hearing of it, I had heard of other wedding related cakes traditions from the south USA. Considering those, american and british alike, it is surprising that it hadn't made its way me to in Alberta. Consider the number of Ex-Pats I know, and that my grandmother was british and my wife spent three years working in a hotel there and you would expect would be exposed to this, and I had not heard of it. I think it is a fun tradition.

    Please don't tell me it is a British custom again. I got that part.

    Sorry crave, I didn't read where it had been mentioned before or I would not have repeated.

    My experience with these cakes is replicating from my mom's recipe.

    THANK U CB for the link.

    I seam to be rattling a lot of feathers around here and don't mean too

    I'm British and I was a bit surprised to read that 'Maids of Honour' were puff pastry filled with curd cheese, so I googled the recipe and there a few variations, apparently they were a favourite of Henry V111. My Mam made them from an old Bero recipe, sort crust pastry cases filled with a little jam and then topped with basic sponge mixture and cooked at gas mark 6 for 15-20 minutes. I'm sure these Maids of Honour could be frozen. There is also a recipe in the Bero book for curd tarts.

    Sure they can be frozen, but won't be quite as nice when fresh. Puff pastry does not freeze well.

    @ Tickle... Agree, I tried freezing some pasties I made with Puff Pastry, wasn't successful at all! However I was referring to the ones my Mam made from the Bero book which are made with short crust pastry :)

    Yes, that pastry freezes, short crust that is.
