I have a birthday and a wedding this weekend, not to mention a full time job. Oh, and I don't get off work until 8pm! Obviously, I can't wait until later this week to get started. So, I went ahead and cooked the birthday cake today.
Freezing a cake easy, and it keeps the freshness. You'll want to cool the cake, and level it. That way, you won't have to do that later.
First, wrap your cake in aluminum foil. You can double wrap it or single wrap it. You want to make sure that is is wrapped completely.
Next, you wrap it in plastic wrap. If you double wrapped the aluminum foil, you can skip this step. Now you can pop it in the fridge.
When you get ready to use the cake, just remove it from the fridge and unwrap it. Thaw on a cooling rack completely. You can now frost. Easy Peasy.
Did I mention I got a new camera?
