Passover cake question

sylviag Mar 29, 2007 01:42 PM

I will be baking two large cakes that I need for Tuesday. I would love to bake them ahead and freeze them, if that would be okay.

They both involve separating the eggs and folding in the beaten egg whites at the end, if that makes any difference. Lots of nuts in each one, also.

Do you think I can freeze them? Or isn't it necessary?

    yes, you can definately freeze them. they will keep the best that way. if you are doing a day or 2 ahead don't worry about it but if any longer, i would freeze. Either way, keep wrapped with plastic wrap. good luck.

        Hey Cakeguy--I'm a great cook but a novice baker. I want to bake a walnut cake, citrus sponge cake and flourless chocolate cake on saturday to serve on monday. I want them to be moist and fresh tasting. What do you think?

          I bake everything ahead and freeze. Clears the kitchen for dinner prep. If you have a good deep-freezer, wrap everything very tightly and freeze. Take cakes out of the freezer in the afternoon but don't unwrap until they're totally thawed. This will prevent any condensation forming on the surface and making the cake soggy.
