Do's and Don'ts of Freezing Cakes



The Do's and Don'ts for Freezing Cakes.

*Freezing cakes can become your best friend.


DO wrap cakes well in several layers of plastic wrap before freezing.


DON'T place cakes into the freezer until it has cooled because cakes will sweat and the moisture will freeze as ice particles on the cake.


DO cover cardboard cake boards with food safe foil or plastic wrap so that the cake does not absorb a cardboard flavor.


DON'T take off the plastic wrapping of your cake when thawing. Allow the condensation to stay on top of the plastic wrapping and off your cake.


DO use non crusting icing if you plan to ice your cake before freezing. Cakes shrink when frozen and expand when thawed, so if you use an icing that crusts it will crack.


DON'T cover your frozen cake with fondant. The condensation will ruin your fondant.


DO know that you can freeze a fondant covered, piping gel covered, or a cream cheese filled cake.


DON'T keep your cake frozen for over a month.


DO thaw your cake within one to two weeks to ensure a quality taste and texture.



Happy Cake Decorating and Good Luck!

Thanks for visiting my recipe blog, you have a very nice and original blog theme here. We froze our wedding cake and ate it a year later, but that is the only time I really froze a cake.

Sorry, I'm confused about when to take off the plastic wrap. Do you take it off after it's completely thawed, yes?

I am making a White Chocolate wedding cake and would like to make it then freeze it. Do you have any recipes for the filling. I was thinking of a custard fruit filling but I am open to all types of ideas. I am making it in a couple of weeks and would love some help! Thanks!! :)

I recently discovered two pound cakes i had baked in 2007 stored inside a deep freezer. When i opened he foil, both cakes were still incrediably fresh and looked great, when warmed in the microwave, they still smelled as the day they were baked. My question is, are they good to eat still?
