Freezing store bought angel food cake?

I have an extra one of these in a plastic package. Can I freeze it right in the package, actually, can I freeze it at all or will it ruin the texture?

    In other words, -bump-

    1. When I was in my trifle-making phase, I bought 2 loaf shaped angel food cakes (vs the ring shaped) and froze one. As I recollect, it was fine in the trifle. I think put the cake in its package in the freezer as is. Probably not the best idea. But do they make ziplock bags big enough for either shape?

      1. i freeze various types of cake all the time. Wrap it in plastic wrap, and then tinfoil, and then put in a Ziploc bag. easy peasy. :)

        1. Angel food generally freezes quite well, especially store-bought ones, as they tend to be full of stabilizers and so forth.
          Unless it was actually baked in-store, chances are that prepackaged grocery-store angel food cakes were shipped frozen and probably put right out onto the bakery shelf straight from the freezer. Refreezing doesn't affect them that much (scarily.)

          1. I slice and wrap the portions in wax paper, then place in a ziplock and freeze. Works fine!
