Freezing a cake might seem odd to some people, but it makes perfect sense when you think about it. Not everyone can eat a big cake in a matter of days. So, instead of leaving it to dry out slowly, it is better to store it in the freezer and then have a tasty treat whenever you please.

However, if you want your cake to keep all or at least most of its qualities when frozen, you have to use the correct technique. Check it out below.

How to Properly Freeze a Cake

Sure, you can just wrap up the cake and pop it in the freezer. However, don’t be surprised if it doesn’t taste all that good when you thaw it. So instead, use a more methodical approach.

The first thing you should do is a flash freeze. Place the uncovered cake in the freezer and leave it for half an hour or so. This will help the cake firm up nicely, keep all layers in place, and trap moisture.

After that, wrap the entire cake with plastic wrap. Make sure that you don’t leave any part of the cake exposed, and don’t be afraid to use a lot of wrap. Then just pop it in the freezer and you are good to go.

The next time you are craving some cake, take it out of the freezer and let it sit on the counter until it reaches room temperature. Then dig in and enjoy the same taste you enjoyed when it was first made.
