Can anybody tell me if gluten free cakes stay fresh as long as wheat based cakes? Does freezing them help or harm them. Thanks for any info you can help me with.

AGluten-free cakes generally do not stay fresh as long as cakes made with gluten, but we've had no problem freezing them for a few months at a time without losing quality. You may want to test with your own recipes to be sure.

Thanks Jason, I had only planned on freezing for a day or two. I need to deliver on Saturday early a.m. for a Sunday p.m. party. I am new to gluten free and understand the importance of no cross-contamination. The cakes are for a soon to be niece who has celiac disease and I want her party to be special. Thanks so much for your response.
