I am aware that you can freeze cakes, but what do you recommend wrapping them in? Just saran wrap?
Thanks in advance.
how long are you planning to freeze? i usually only freeze for a couple of days at the most, and usually a double layer of saran wrap will do, any longer and id suggest wrapping in saran, and then foil.
Not sure that I can even find room, but I have cake orders for two weekends in a row and I am just thinking in advance. Maybe store in freezer for possibly 1 week plus?
Thanks for the tip - I will wrap with foil also. Thaw in frig or on countertop?
Its personal choice, i prefer to thaw on the bench out of the wrapping, some like to leave it in the wrapping.
Hi, you can freeze cakes upto 3 months. I wrap them in saran wrap really well. Then in foil and then I put them in freezer bags.
Thanks to all of you!
How about cheesecakes? Tightly wrapped, how long can they be frozen?
Some of my best cakes I've tasted have been frozen for literally 2-3 months. As long as they are properly wrapped (I double wrap in plastic wrap, very tightly), then they should be absolutely fine to be frozen for a while.
I double wrap in Press and Seal. This works beautifully. When it's time to decorate I simply unwrap, fill, crumbcoat and then, if a final buttercream coat is going on then I just go ahead and finish the cake. IF however the final coat is fondant then allow the crumbcoated cake about 2 hours to come to room temp before covering. HTH
