or only baked cakes?
and also Im doing a 3 tier cake for saturday. cake I just referigerate the cake until i ice them or will they go stale?
I don't know but I personally would not freeze cake batter, too many unknowns for me. But why not bake the cakes and then freeze them? That works well for most of us on cc.
I have frozen cake batter in a cake pan, moved it from freezer to oven, and it baked up fine. It was a box mix, so I can't tell you for sure how a scratch batch of batter would work.
Scientifically speaking, the process that causes a cake to go stale is halted when frozen. It is excelerated when refrigerated. So actually, refrigerating a cake makes it go staler, faster. In the baking world, the freezer is your friend!
I have frozen and used scratch cake batter before - I froze it in either gallon bags or tupperware (can't remember) (and do they even make tupperware still??).
Just let it thaw the whole way, and then stir till it's all mixed together again.
thank you both!
Now im baking them tomorrow. thanks so much!!
