I cover mine in saran wrap, wrap with tinfoil and put it in the freezer, but I always do this right after they come out of the oven.

I have said it once, I have said it a million times, Use Press N'seal wrap. Sticky side towards the cake. It seals out all air and they make a freezer version that is great! No need to wrap with anything additionally.

Thankfully cakes divine, I believe you. With the new system here, when we all say it once, we say it a thousand times! Now how many times wil I say it? Hmm... icon_biggrin.gif

Bake, cool completely, wrap in layers of plastic wrap, put in a bread bag, freezer bag or use foil for bigger ones and pop it in the freezer.

Omit the "cool completely" you will have a moister, more flavorful product wrapping hot and flash freezing icon_biggrin.gif

Just make sure you have lined the bottom of your pan with parchment paper so the cake doesn't crack when dumping.

Parchement paper is what is and actual type of paper that resists heat well and keeps baked goods from sticking to pans. Waxed paper is similar but waxed paper will burn in the oven
