How To freeze cake

All cakes that have high levels of sugar and fat freeze best. Think Angel food, sponge and cupcakes. And, you don’t have to worry about them losing their moist quality either. Fruitcakes can actually improve in flavor once they have been frozen. Who knew? Well, I did J

 

Step 1: Prepare for the storm

Once you have baked your cake, let it cool, and then immediately freeze it to keep all of its components together. Batter, on the other hand that is frozen, should be completely thawed out prior to baking.  This will ensure even rising.

 

Step 2: Icy Weather

As your cake has cooled, your next step is to wrap it in moisture-vapor-proof wrapping and let it freeze until firm. Once the cake is firm, pack cake in freezer carton or a metal cake tin to prevent crushing and cracking. The average life expectancy for you cake is 1-2 months.

 

Step 3: Thawed out

An unfrosted cake can be thawed at room temperature. It may take about an hour for wrapped cakes. You can also wrap your cake in aluminum foil and set it in a 275-degree oven for 20-25 minutes. Be sure to eyeball your cake. Too much over time can allow your cake to dry-out, which let’s face it, really won’t taste so good.

 

So remember friends, you don’t have to finish that scrumptious chocolate cake right now. Save it for later…just follow these easy steps and whalah!

 

Enjoy!
