Hi All,

Need your advise.
I have a 14" cake order on Dec 8. Am gonna bake the cake today and freeze it. But just realised that my freezer is not big enough to store a 14" cake.
Am I safe to place them in the refrigerator. I intend to bake 2 cakes. Will they survive till Dec 8.

Please let me know.

Thank you.

Putting cakes in the 'frig accelerates the "going stale" process. See this thread, http://forum.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=608252&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=cooks&&start=15 , and then see pastrylady's post on page 2.

I understand Indydebi's concern but from experience we have kept cake leftovers for more than 10 days & I felt it did not suffer any loss of moisture/freshness. If there is any way you can put off baking the 2nd layer I would suggest that. then when you put the two layers together the freshest one will help spread the moisture into the other layer.
