I always bake in the first part of the week and PLAN to get the cakes in the freezer for a day or two. Makes for better cake. (if its wrapped properly.)

baking, wrapping tight, putting in freezer, taking out, let thaw room temp, decorate. sound right. but you do not need to put back in frig. does it have perishable filling. i find that putting back in frig. can make it dry out. other might say different. hth

question: how does freezing make for a better cake? i always thought that it would make it dry and crumbly.
this would be a great asset to the process if i can freeze prior to decorating.
do you fill the cakes prior to freezing or just freeze them plain?
TIA

I ALWAYS freeze my cakes before decorating and if Leah_S says it makes for a better cake I certainly trust her judgement. I don't fill before freezing though.
