Help Please - Freezer/baking question

yummyinmytummy | Nov 14, 2011 09:48 PM

Hi

I want to bake AND FREEZE my chocolate cake layers on the Monday before Turkey day. i would defrost them Wednesday night and plan on frosting the cake on Thursday.

I am not very experienced with baking and freezing and when you can/should freeze something.

Assuming I allow the layers to completely cool. Wrap each layer (there are 2 in total) in saran wrap and then foil and then a freezer bag.

Can I defrost the cakes on Wednesday night? Should I leave them on the counter? In the fridge over night and then the counter. I would want to frost the cakes (cream cheese frosting) Turkey day morning

ANY help would be appreciated.

TIA

YIMT
