How to Freeze Unfrosted Cake: Prepare Them Ahead of Time

Make sure to prepare your cake before freezing it. This will help prevent any moisture loss during the process. After you take the cakes out of the oven, allow them to cool completely on cooling racks before you wrap them up and put them in the freezer.

Once you’ve prepared your cake, you need to wrap it well. Wrap it tightly so that air cannot escape. Using freezer paper will ensure your cakes will stay safe from freezer burn. Then place it into a freezer bag or container. Don’t put it directly into the freezer because it will take too long to freeze. Instead, place it in the freezer bag first, then place it in the freezer.

Thaw Them Safely


After freezing, thaw them slowly at room temperature. Thaw them at room temperature to ensure the layers will be soft, moist, and delicious. If you’re using a microwave, set the timer for 20 minutes. You should also check them every few hours after thawing. Once they are thawed, now comes the fun part of decorating your cake!

Once you’ve thawed your cake, let it sit out until completely defrosted. Then frost it with your favorite frosting. Now, serve it with whipped cream, ice cream, or other toppings. So delicious!

Bonus Tip: How Long is the Cake Good For?


 Make sure to write on the label what flavor of cake you have and the date you put it in the freezer. This is important to note because your cake layers should last from 2-3 months in the freezer. Plus, you will certainly want to know what flavor you will be serving, right?
