I am getting married on Friday at a smallish ceremony. We are having cheesecake instead of traditional wedding cake. The only problem is- we are working full time and don't know when I'll be able to bake them all!

The recipes I'm using are pretty standard and most come from the Kraft Foods website. I would like to bake after work starting tonight. How long will a cheesecake be good for after it's baked? We have to transport them for about 3 hours to the location of the wedding, so they'll be moved in a cooler. I was thinking that it would probably be a good idea to just freeze them.

What is the best way to freeze a cheesecake? Should I wrap it up the same way I do my regular cakes with plastic wrap then foil?

Any advice would be much appreciated. I'm a first year teacher and am incredibly busy with school work. (I do not recommend moving to a new city, starting a new job and planning a wedding at the same time! haha).

Just dble wrap them in plastic wrap. If any decorating to be done I would hold off till you get there if possible. Some simple whipped cream dollops piped on look great.

Ditto what Mike said and they can be frozen for weeks ahead of time when properly wrapped!
