I haven't personally tried it but I have read that yes, you can freeze batter.  Most seem to  freeze it in a zip lock bag.  How long?  Maybe weeks to a month?  Just a guess.  How long are you wanting to freeze it for?

thx for the reply :) I'm thinking probably for couple of weeks or so. I did also hear that people do it, but I wasn't sure can I just use an airtight container or a ziplock bag is better.

I freeze batter all the time, I freeze in ziplocks and it keeps for a couple of months . I find my cakes actually rise better , and come out more level after the mix has been frozen. 

 

I just usually bring it back to room temp before I use it.

I think an airtight container would be fine.  The ziplock  just takes less room in the freezer.
