AWhat is the best way to freeze cake layers for future use. I have been getting multiple cake orders for the same time frame and thought about baking and freezing layers ahead of time so that I'm not swamped with everything at once. Does the cake still taste as good if you freeze it first?
I wrap mine twice in plastic wrap and then again in aluminum foil, or you can put it in a freezer bag. Thaw it wrapped on the counter. That way condensation develops on the wrapper, not your cake.
Mine taste freshly baked after being frozen. But I don't freeze for a long time, no more than two months usually.
I do everything that AnnieCahill does. If I want the cake to thaw a *bit* faster, though, I take the aluminum foil off, but leave the plastic wrap still on the cake while it sits on the counter, so it is not as insulated.
