How to freeze unfrosted, baked cake layers:
- Prep: Make sure baked cake layers, Bundts, and other unfrosted cakes are completely cool. For optimal freshness, keep Bundt cakes, pound cakes, and other one-layer cakes whole.
2. Package: For cake layers, wrap each tightly in plastic wrap and then place into resealable bags. For Bundt cakes, tube cakes, and other one-layer cakes, wrap tightly with plastic wrap, and seal in a resealable bag.
3. Freeze: Baked cakes can keep in the freezer for up to 3 months.
4. Defrost: To frost, remove cake layers from wrapping and frost while still frozen. Let frosted and unfrosted cakes come to room temperature, about 3 hours or let thaw in refrigerator overnight.
