Hi, all. Can I freeze a cake that has already been doweled? I'm asking because I had this little cake about a month ago that I doweled with popsicle sticks, and I froze it and when it defrosted it collapsed, because the popsicle sticks absorbed moisture and just sagged. For the one I'm doing now I have wooden dowels - I'm assuming that won't happen? Thanks for your help!

I've never frozen a doweled cake before but it sounds like it will work just fine. Maybe someone else can give you better advice.

Well, I freeze all the time, but I don't use dowels. If you'd like to see how the SPS system works, PM me with your email and I'll send you instructions.

I'm converting one cake maker at a time!

Hi Jen,

I have frozen doweled cakes many times with no problems, but always use wooden dowels...I suspect your popsickle sticks were just too thin..good luck!!
