When freezing a cake, should I let it cool first or wrap and freeze right away?
I am a fan of always letting my cake cool first. So people will tell you they wrap the cake while it's still warm and freeze it. I seen cake that was put in the freezer still warm and it was not moist as some will tell you... It was plain soggy - Yuck!
I have read that you should always cool the cake first because if you wrap it while it is still warm it can allow bacteria to grow.
Yeah, cool first. Soggy cake is not moist cake lol!
Cool first, then wrap.
I let mine cool most of the way but they are not usually completely room temp - simply because I bake at night and don't want to have to wait that long to go to bed! LOL
I have read that other CCers do wrap them when warm. But like Cake_Princess said, I would be worried about too much steam and the possibility of them getting soggy.
