How to Store and Freeze Cake Layers
A cake is good for 1 week in the fridge, depending on how dry it was when you baked it.
This is a great question! The right answer depends on the type of cake, but most cakes will last at least one week in the refrigerator. They will keep for up to 3 days in the fridge, or 6 months in the freezer. To ensure maximum freshness, wrap each cake well so that air doesn’t come between it and its container.
In the fridge
You can store cakes in the freezer, if you want them to last longer; they will typically keep for 1-2 months when kept frozen.Cake is like wine. If it’s not enjoyed within a few days, the cake will begin to stale and lose its quality. But if you want to keep your cake fresher longer, store it in the fridge after serving it.
When you’re buying a cake, it’s common for people to want it to be their last piece. Keep it in its box wrapped in plastic wrap, and keep any traces of frosting off the top. The best way to keep your cake from going stale is to freeze it first.
When it comes to cakes and other treats you can freeze them for up to one month. To know whether or not your cake is still good, check the packaging and take note of the expiration date.If you want to keep your cakes fresh and ready to eat, then it’s best to take out an hour before serving. When baking a cake, let it cool completely before wrapping in plastic wrap or tin foil, and then store in your fridge until you need it
Once you have served the cakes, we recommend placing any leftovers in a sealed container or wrapping in cling film to prevent air from entering. Doing so will retain moisture in your cakes for the duration of its shelf life (7/10 days from delivery), as if you had left it uncovered for that period you would have a very dry cakes that would be fine to eat on a microbiological level it would not pleasant (let’s just say you need a big cup of tea to wash it down!).
