I was making a cake for my nieces bridal shower that was supposed to take place last Sunday. Well the shower got canceled and I have cake. The top tier was completed before we knew we were going to have to cancel so I gave that away, my husband is diabetic can't keep that much cake in my house. The layers for the bottom tier were frozen and are still wrapped in the freezer. My question is how long can I keep them and expect a good cake. There is a chocolate layer and a choc chip layer. We couldn't get another date for the showere until Oct 2. Is that too long to keep the cake frozen or should I just trash it. There is no filling and no frosting. Considering the terrible disasters I can't complain about a wasted cake but I would like to know if I can keep it that long. icon_sad.gif

We've kept a fully decorated cake frozen for 3 months and it's been just fine when thawed for 24 hours in the fridge. This was a BC only cake so I'm not sure how long a fondant cake would last.

Anniversary cakes are frozen for a yr then eaten... I have done this and is was just fine when it come out... So just a few more weeks won't hurt

Frozen layers from wholesalers are normally labelled with a 6 month expiration date. Of course, they can last twice as long if wrapped properly.
