I know everyone swears by freezing cakes and all but is it possible to freeze carrot cake to fabulous results?

I am making a big birthday cake for my mom at the end of September and I want to get the baking out of the way. The hard part here will be the stacking and I don't want to have to worry about one more thing possibly going wrong.

So questions is, does carrot cake freeze well?

Yes it does. I took one out of the freezer yesterday for an order due this morning. The trimmings were delicious!

It freezes well, in fact, the flavors inhance and it seems to get moister.

I had some left overs in the freezer for a month or so....I thawed and iced and still if not better.

I agree!! I always make my carrot cake ahead because I think it's more moist and delicious after a night in the freezer. It's also much easier to work with if it still partially frozen.

Yes, yes, yes! As long as it is well wrapped it freezes well and once thawed tastes moister. I find that it goes beautifully with orange SMBC filling (yum)

I wrap mine in saran and then foil and they are perfect and fresh when they defrost. I usually make a couple of small rounds to freeze when I make carrot cake because they make great "spur of the moment" desserts or gifts. Or a present for my dad if he's having a bad day healthwise. icon_smile.gif
