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.

Wrapped well they should be fine.

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.
