I double wrap them in plastic wrap, then put them in a ziplock baggie. You can get really big baggies, which helps with the larger cakes!

Do you store the wrapped cakes in the fridge or on the counter?

I usually crumb coat freez unwrapped for 10 min to get hard and then either freeze totally until the day of decorating or refridge I have great results when i freeze as it is easier for me to ice when they are frozen icon_biggrin.gif

I double wrap mine in saran wrap as well. Sometimes I put them in the freezer for a couple of days (ie if I bake today I would pop them in the freezer until I started working on them, probably Thursday for a Saturday wedding).

I haven't had any problems with drying out etc.

I always put the wrapped cakes in the fridge. It's just easier handling cold cakes (but I don't want them frozen when I ice them). I never crumb coat first, but there's no reason why you couldn't.

does covering the cakes in saran not result in the sticky tops?

As long as your cakes are COMPLETELY COOL and I mean really completely cool, they don't get sticky tops. When I freeze mine and let them sit is when they get sticky (its the condensation from being frozen). I try not to do that but in the heat of the battle...i mean while decorating... icon_wink.gif
