Advice on freezing my cake...

Hi, I want to freeze my cake. I only need it to be stored for about 5 days. While I know freezing cake is OK, my dilemma is that I do NOT want to wrap it in plastic wrap. There's a delicate cream layer on top that just can't be touched, and I really don't want to finish the cake on the day of serving. I was hoping that I could simply put it in air-tight tubberware and then put it in the freezer. That would be OK wouldn't it? No freezer burn?

  1. That might work. You could also put it in a disposable cake box, then wrap the outside of the cakebox several times with plastic wrap. But, the delicate cream based part might not freeze and defrost well. Have you tried it before?

    1. I have the same question about freezing the cream layer. If it is okay, I'd probably freeze it in the tupperware for a couple of hours, but when it's frozen, take it out and wrap w/ plastic wrap, and put it back in the tupperware. Just make sure to unwrap before defrosting.
