Reply How do I wrap cakes to freeze them??

Corrie ...

I freeze all my cakes, even If Im using them later the same day. I wrap them about 10 minutes out of the oven to trap the steam (that’s moisture that’s escaping!!) and the way I do it is that while the cake is still in the pan, I lay 2 layers of plastic wrap (or one if I’m using later in day) on top of the cake, place a cooling rack on top, flip it over and remove the pan, wrap up the layer, place the pan back on the cake and flip again and stick in the freezer. I think initially putting the wrapped layer back into the pan helps the cake keep it’s shape..with the added bonus on being able to procrasinate on washing the cake pan ;) Once the cake is frozen, I generally remove the layer from the pan but sometimes I forget and then I think I’ve lost a cake pan 3 weeks later only to find it hiding in the freezer…
