I, and a lot of other decorators here freeze cake layers. It can be for a week or 2 wks. or so or even over nite. I have frozen up to 3 months. and so have others . I take out the nite before i want to frost my cakes. Works great for me. I don,t put in fridge. Been told on here that can make your layers or finished cake dry. I believe what was said and stick to it. Leah_s on here says so and i believe her. She,s been at it for a long time and knows what she is talking about. Freezing layers makes them easier to frost and moist, etc. hth

I too pop room temperature cakes into the freezer. Then when its time to decorate I level them still frozen because its so much easier. Frosting a frozen cake is not ideal...but they thaw amazingly fast.

If I bake and am using the cake within the next 24 hours I just leave it in the pan covered with saran wrap and store it back in the oven....just don't forget its in there icon_biggrin.gif
