I need Help Again! Can I freeze or refrigerate batter in advance and for how long. This will be my first order Smile I have to make 200 for next week. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Iris

I really am not sure, as I have never done either. I googled it, and the general consensus was not to. They said to bake whatever it is that you need to bake, then wrap and freeze that. But I don't think that 200 of anything would fit in my freezer! icon_smile.gif Maybe someone has done it, so here's a BUMP.

Wouldn't freeze it either. Bake what you can ahead and freeze them.

I was just wondering the same thing..I just started the wilton classes, and making a cake every week has been the death of my kitchen, and since I don't use boxed cake mixes I have so much batter left over the I have just had to dump it, I don't have enough room in my freezer for a cake..I am a stay at home mom of 2 so I do 2-3 weeks of shopping in advance, you can imagine what my pantry and fridge look like.LOL...I am anxious to see the replies though.

So I just bake them in advance and wrap them in saran wrap & freeze them. Won't they be soggy when I defrost them to put the icing?

Not in my experience, no. Wonderfully moist and tender, but by no means soggy. Leave it in the wrapping while it defrosts, though; it only takes about half an hour, anyway.

Have you tried reducing your recipe? I reduce mine down enough to make a 6".
