I don't sell cakes, and only make them for my kids
Has anyone ever frozen a cake for 2 and a half months? I made an cake that I didn't use for my son's birthday. I made a chocolate cake and decided to make a pecan cake instead. I would love use it for my daughter's birthday, but am not sure if it would be ok. I use a deepfreeze.

YES!! I have frozen cakes - well wrapped - for 6 months and had them thaw out like fresh-baked. I do not sell, BTW, I bake and decorate for fun. I double wrap in plastic wrap, then wrap in foil, then vacuum seal any that will fit in a food saver type bag. If I can't vacuum seal, I double the foil - once in one direction, the second layer in the opposite direction. I almost always bake from scratch, but I have frozen mixes with success as well. I thaw in the plastic wrap.

If you are wrapping it right, I don't see why not. It should be like freezing anything else. Many people on CC swear by freezing cakes. I've never done it for that long, but I think it will be just fine.
