Cake Shrinking After Freezing?

I'm baffled. Last week I baked (4) 7" cakes with the same recipe in the same pans. I also baked (2) 7" cookies to place between the tiers.

I made the first cake last Wednesday. Two of the 7" layers with a 7" cookie in between and they were all perfect - the exact same size - which is what I expected, since they were all baked in the same size pans. I froze the other (2) 7" cakes and the other 7" cookie to use later.

I got them out of the freezer last night and stacked them this morning. Odd thing - the cookie is now bigger than both cakes by about 1/2". Puzzling, no?

So confused. So, has anyone else had a cake shrink on them after freezing? Any other ideas what could be going on?
