Freezing Frosted Homemade Cakes is simple, but (yes there’s a but) you must make sure your frosting can withstand being frozen. The top two frostings that work wonderfully being frozen are “Cream Cheese”, and “American Buttercream.” Two of my favorite ones to work with!
After you get your cake, all frosted and decorated, you will want to place it in the freezer for an hour. This will allow for your frosting and decorations to set. Once you are sure everything is set, then take it out of the freezer (just like your unfrosted layers) and wrap it in two layers of plastic wrap as snug as you can, followed by aluminum foil.
Now, like your unfrosted cake layers, you will want to get your cake into the freezer as soon as you can to maintain its freshness and enjoy it at its prime as well.
When you get ready to thaw your cake, you may do so on your counter or in your fridge overnight. NOTE: Your frozen cake, if wrapped properly can last up to 6 months in your freezer!
Frostings that do not work well being frozen are:
- Whipped Cream frosting
- Royal Icing
- Meringue Frostings
NOTE: These frostings are best when made fresh and used when you make them.
How to Freeze Single Slices of Cake
This is so easy to do! All Ya must do is wrap the slices of cake in plastic wrap individually or put them on a plate and wrap the plastic wrap around the plate tight. You will want to make sure you do a double layer of the plastic on the layers as well to protect them from freezer burn. The cake slices should last 2-3 months in your freezer. Now you can keep on enjoying your cake a little longer! 🤤
