I am making three cakes that are all due on Halloween. How far in advance can I make the cakes and how do I store them before they are frosted?

I always bake my cakes a week before. Then wrap them in saran wrap and then foil and freeze until the night before I am reading to decorate.

Yes, you can bake them ahead of time and freeze them. I never leave my cakes frozen more than 1 week, but I am sure it can at least last 2 weeks. Here are my 2 cents:

To freeze:
I bake my cakes, let it cool, tort them. Wrap them in foil paper then with plastic. Freeze.

To thaw:
Remove from freezer and let it thaw wrapped. Unwrap, let it thaw more. You are ready to go!!

I find that cakes are moister with this method and they taste the same or better as just out of the oven.There was a previous thread on this, for more comments here is the link:
