I have lots of cake layers in different sizes that I'd like to freeze. They were baked today and as soon as they are cool, I would like to freeze them for a couple of days (until Thursday night).

My question is: can I stack them in the freezer? Will they get squished? I would like to stack them in stacks of 2 or 3 maximum.

Is this ok? How do you freeze your layers?

I try to let one cake get at least partly frozen before stacking, but then I stack.

Maybe put some in the fridge and some in the freezer, and an hour or two later you can stack them all together in the freezer.

If you freeze as you bake, one cake should be partially frozen by the time you get another one in there on top of it.

I do the same as Kitagrl said. As I bake them, I put them in the freezer, so it will be chilled & starting to harden by the time the next one goes in. I've stacked them three high with no problems.

I freeze hard first, then stack them.
