I was baking cakes 2 days ago, and while wrapping them up to freeze I realized that I was going to run out of saran wrap. I was not up to going out to the store...and hubby had just left the grocery store so I was not going to send him back in for 1 thing. So I decided to try my glad press'n seal. Boy does that work nice cause you can actually seal the cake in it pretty good. I still wrapped my cakes in the freezer paper after that, but in a pinch it worked great. I will still use plastic wrap because it's cheaper, but in a pinch it will do.

Love that idea!. I would think that it would be a tighter seal with press and seal, just never thought about it. I still haven't tried to freeze cakes yet, but it's on my list. Wonderful tip!

yeah that press and seal is great....I also have one of those little machines that suck the air out and seal....when my hubby was in the desert I made him choc chip cookies and put them in there cuz I didnt know how long it would take to get them to him, or if he would eat them quickly...he said they looked a wierd coloring but was daring enough to open and try one... though it was a little discolored they tasted great. So I suppose I should use it more often..but when I dont I use my press and seal stuff

May I ask how far ahead can you bake and freeze your cakes.....and can you tell they were frozen when you go to eat them????

I bake and freeze my cakes up to a week before I need to decorate my cakes. And no one can tell that I froze the cake. I make sure that it is well wrapped so that freezer burn does not come in and ruin it.

I went to our commissary.... and they dont sell it anymore.... I ran out, I cant believe it... this base is closing before it closes..... Cant wait to leave! So now I bought more saran wrap, and will wait to buy anything else until we are at our new home!.

I also love the press 'n seal for my plastic containers that I can't find lids for. I have had stuff in my lunch, with the stuff laying on it's side, and nothing has leaked out yet.

I too haven't tried the cake freezing but I plan to in the near future. I work full time and don't get off work until 5:30 in the evenings. I have an hour drive to get home, so I don't begin to bake my cakes until around 7:00 p.m. By the time it cools enough to begin to put the icing on, it's about 8:30 or 9:00 p.m...then comes the decorating! I like to take my time on them, so many times, it's after midnight by the time I get my kitchen cleaned. I have got to try the freezing cake method! I have a cake to bake for Friday. I think I'll bake it up on Wednesday night, freeze it and put it in the fridge to thaw out Friday morning for decorating when I get home. That would save me a couple of hours time. Thanks to all of you for all the wonderful tips!! Dunno how I did without this place for so long!!

Hey, we're glad to be able to help you. I love freezing my cakes to help save on time, I swear that it actually helps make the cake moister- but that's my opinion take it or leave it.
