A cake that will freeze well?

Adrienne | Mar 4, 2007 11:40 AM

I will be out of town for my roommate's birthday, but I'd like to leave a cake hidden in the freezer and email her that morning and tell her where to find it. Preferably there would be nothing for her to do with the cake other then letting it thaw, inviting folks over and eating it.

To make it a true surprise, I need to make it well in advance of my departure (some time when she isn't here), so I need a recipe for a cake that can last for at least 2 weeks in the freezer.

I have loads of equipment, access to whatever ingredients I need, no budgetary restrictions, and no time restrictions. The only catch is that she doesn't like chocolate. Yes, I know. But she's not at all picky as long as it's not chocolate.

She especially likes nuts, but that's not a high priority. Delicious is the priority.

Please advise me, chowhounds.

Thanks in advance,
