I am going to freeze my cakes for the first time, due to a very big wedding. Is it okay to freeze them in a deep freeze? I would put one layer of cakes, wait till they freeze, then stack another set on them?

Any advise, greatly appreciated!

I always freeze my cake in a "deep freezer". I have a chest type freezer in my basement and use it all of the time for cakes. Just make sure that you wrap them in enough plastic wrap. Be careful that you do not crush your cake or smoosh it when wrapping it - this can happen very easily.

I store mine in cardboard boxes (like where reams of paper come in) and then put a piece of cardboard between each cake. But very large cakes would not fit in these boxes. You could take pieces of cardboard and put them between your cakes when you put them in the freezer even if you don't put them in a box.

I individually wrap each layer then place them (the larger tiers) single layer 'til frozen(or several hours) then, place another layer on those and continue in the same fashion until all are keep from squashing any of the layers. I also place cake boards on the racks of the freezer to prevent grooving of the layers.

ETA: 8" or smaller, I don't wait 'til one layer is frozen...I just stack them in there...two by two...if any higher, I do wait until frozen before putting any more on top of them.

Sure. Deep freezer, upright freezer, makes no difference.
