Okay -- so I purchased the very last bit of fresh, luscious strawberries for the season at a FANTASTIC price!!!

I wish to make the Strawberry cake (recipe here on CC) and stick it in the freezer. Unfrosted of course! I've made this cake a couple of times and it is absolutely to die for. Very dense, moist cake.

So can I stick it in the freezer, defrost in the fridge, and frost as usual?
I don't want a gummy nasty cake!!

I don't see any reason why you could not freeze it. I have frozen just about all kinds of cake. Always wrap in 2 layers of saran wrap then in freezer zip loc. When you get ready to use them just let them get to room temp before you frost.

How odd that two totally different topics came up back to back on the same thread.
Do you know what shape? That will make a difference on the sizes of the layers

It is a little odd on the two topics!

Thanks, Linliv46!

Might I add -- I have frozen this Strawberry cake once before & thought it had turned out OK. However, the recipients said it was gummy in the middle. They had taken it from the fridge to a hot I had chalked up the gumminess to the hot car! icon_confused.gif

Pretty nervous to try it again so thought I throw it out there!!

Which strawberry cake recipe are you referring to? I've made a million of them and still not happy with results

if its got fresh strawberries in it -- the water in the berries will melt out  separately and that could also cause it to go gummy fwiw
