I don't keep cakes in the freezer for longer than a month, because I don't have the room for it, and because I will forget it is in there. I would say something like 3-6 months if it was carefully wrapped.

Icing, again kinda goes along the same lines, but I will keep it longer. I just cleaned out my freezer this last weekend. I generally save colored icings. If I couldn't remember what I had used the icing for or it had been a long time since I had used it, I went ahead and tossed it. Because again like I said, I'll forget it is in there.

Ditto to Texas Sugar!

I prefer to bake and not freeze. The only time I would freeze is when I was working with thin sheets of sponge cake and they were easier to move when frozen. If wrapped well, it should taste as fresh as you made it that day. I triple wrap in commercial plastic before freezing.

The bakery I worked for always froze their cakes...and they would make stand-by cakes from left-over batter just to have on hand for last minute emergency situations or cake balls.

They would generally toss out anything that was there after 3 months. Although once I took a red velvet cake home that had been hidden in there almost 6 months and it was wonderful. Of course they were using commercial freezers.

I bake and freeze the week before the order is due and I just wrap tightly in plastic wrap several times to keep air out.

Wedding cake top tiers are frozen for a year and they normally taste fine depending on if wrapped and stored properly.

Six months is a typical freezer life for baked layers.
