Yeah I've never frozen a cake before.. But after reading the posts on here, i wrapped it thoroughly in saran wrap and put it in the freezer last night. the cake is needed for NEXT Sunday. I just opened the freezer and tapped the top of the cake out of curiousity and it's kinda crunchy. like little tiny ice from the moistness maybe?? I don't think the whole cake is crunchy. I think its a layer of tiny crunchyness on top of the cake... is this normal???
It's been in there for about 14 hours now. is that bad? can i save it? WHATS UP??

It will be fine once you thaw it.

I freeze cakes all the time, wrapped in layers of saran wrap and 2 layers of foil. Just thaw the cake in the wrappers, and it will be fine.

There's some moisture on the top of the cake that froze into ice crystals. Perfectly normal.

Yup...it will be fine. When you are ready to fill/frost it just unwrap it, fill, crumbcoat and then let it thaw out and settle for about 3 hours under the crumbcoat and it will be nice and moist.
