Hi All!

I have a cake that I froze that is currently defrosting still wrapped. I have a 8" and 6" cake that is wrapped in saran wrap 3 times over. Then they are wrapped again with Glad-Press and Seal. They are also wrapped 3 time over in aluminum foil. I took them out of the freezer Tuesday Night (April 14). I plan on icing and stacking on Friday night. The party is sunday afternoon.

The time of the party changed at the last minute on me. My cakes are still wrapped as noted above. Will they still be ok wrapped until I unwrap them Friday??? Should they stay fresh???

Any suggestions are appreciated....

I have frozen a cake and thawed it 2 weeks later and it's still tasted fresh. and I don't wrap it nearly as much as you do.

I have frozen cakes and had them in the freezer for several weeks. I only put 3 layers of saran wrap on mine and have had no problems. The moisture from the thawing of the cakes will stay locked into the cake if you do not unwrap them. They will stay fresh and moist until Sunday.

Hon, that much wrapping is *overkill*! LOL. There is no need for that much.
Take the foil off and they will be just fine.
