The Correct Way To Freeze Cake Slices And Preserve Freshness
If you've ever baked a cake for a party that didn't have enough attendees to finish it off, you've likely wondered how to preserve your sweet masterpiece so it doesn't wind up in the trash. If done properly, you can actually keep your cake frozen for a long time, and it will still be just as delicious when you defrost it.
Wrap cooled cake layers in plastic wrap and aluminum foil before storing them in a freezer-safe container in the coldest part of your freezer; if you're freezing cake slices, place wax or parchment paper on each side of the slice to keep it fresh. To defrost cake, remove it from the freezer and keep it wrapped as it thaws.
While creamy cakes, pound cakes, and layer cakes freeze well, tread lightly with more delicate recipes, such as angel food cake and cakes made with curd, fruit decorations, or ganache; these are not as foolproof for freezing. However, Still Tasty reports that any cake can be frozen for over a year if prepared properly.
