I am attempting to bake and freeze some cakes. I think I can just wrap them in saran wrap and freeze for a month. Should I then thaw at room temp. before I tort and frost? HELP

I wrap mine in saran wrap and then tin foil. I let them defrost in the fridge in the morning and torte and frost that evening. I like to torte my cakes when they are cold - it's easier.

Be sure to thaw still in the wrapping. That way condensation will not cause a soggy cake. Ask me how I learned this lesson, I dare you! icon_redface.gif

I double wrap in press and seal. Then take it out of the freezer, fill, crumbcoat and then let it come to room temp for about 2 hours and then cover with fondant. If using buttercream as the final coating then you don't have to wait the two hours.
