I noticed that I have an entire shelf of my deep freeze devoted to cake top/scraps just waiting to be made into cake balls/pops...but I rarely get orders for these, and some of them are dated 2 years back...can someone please let me know "how old is too old"? At what point does something become freezer burned and/or lose flavor? I don't want to keep them if they will be nasty but I also don't want to throw them out/waste them if they are still potentially good...

2 yrs is too old, toss them. I wouldn't keep them longer than 6 months, especiallly if you don't get orders for them. Use up the ones that are younger than months and make them into treats for your customers before christmas, or gift them to teachers neighbours etc

Thanks for your advice Ursula, I will do that - that's pretty much what I thought but I hated to toss them if there was a chance they were still good...I will appreciate the freezer space though!
