Hello All!

 

First time poster but long time "fan" of these forums icon_smile.gif

 

I make cakes and cupcakes on the side mostly for family and friends and sometimes for friends of friends icon_smile.gif

 

Since I work full-time and am now pregnant, I try to make and freeze cakes/cupcakes ahead of time so I'm not on my feet for too long. Up until now, I would only freeze chocolate cakes/cupcakes. I love it because 1) It saves me time 2) It makes them more moist. Also, all the goodies I make are from scratch.

 

I have a cake that I need to make for my aunt this coming Saturday and would like to freeze the cakes ahead of time. She is requesting a yellow cake...can the yellow cake be frozen successfully (won't change texture or taste)??? Do the ingredients make a difference?

 

I cool all my cakes, wrap in cellophane, foil, and ziploc bags, the freeze.

 

Also for future reference, can a vanilla bean cake be frozen as well?

 

Your help and expertise is much appreciated!

Welcome!

 

I also work full time and there is no way I could do cakes without my freezer.  I freeze everything with no problem.  I wrap with plastic wrap when slightly warm, wrap again in foil, and freeze.  I freeze everything from scratch cakes to box mix cakes to cookies and icing.  I thaw everything on the counter with the wrappers on and then take it off when it's at room temperature.

Great to know that you freeze everything with no problem. I will go ahead and bake and freeze the yellow cakes this week then!
