So it's Saturday evening here in Australia and hubby wanted to go out all day. So I'm just getting back to my cakes now :( I baked 2 cakes last night and put them in the fridge, but when stacked they're not tall enough for my liking. I've just mixed up the ingredients for two more layers and put them in the oven.


Usually I let the cake cool for 15 minutes in the silicone pan. Then I take it out and put it on a wire rack  until it's cool, then level it. 


I need to bring these cakes to a family get together tomorrow and I'd prefer to stay up late to finish them rather than wake up early.


So .... can I put the cakes in the fridge fresh out of the oven? Would it be better to let them cool for 15 minutes then pop them in the fridge? Please help me speed this caking process up. Thanks!!!

I have tried putting them straight in the freezer and it worked... although you might find that the centre is still a bit warm...

I have done it several times. Didn't hurt it a bit.
