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. icon_smile.gif

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
