I'm devestated!

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I spent all day last week making about 10 cakes for my daughters first birthday. Her party is on Saturday. I thought I wrapped them great and I stuck them in the freezer.

Well! Good thing I checked them today to take them out and put them in the fridge cause they are ALL freezer burned!

Ugh, now I have to make them all over again. I have never had that happen!

After a week? How odd? Did you taste them?

Yup, after a week. I'm so confused. I tasted them and they tasted weird, so I trashed them. I guess I'll never freeze another cake again.

How did you wrap them? I freeze all my cakes and never have a problem.

How is the other stuff is your freezer? You may have to adjust the temp or level.

I wrapped them about 5 times in plastic wrap them put them in a freezer bag. The 10 in cake didn't fit in a bag so it got hit the worse.

The rest of the stuff in the freezer is fine. I thought I did it right. icon_sad.gif

Wow I freeze all my cakes and never had that happen either! That's too bad...

I do however freeze the cakes in freezers that do not keep other stuff, in general....so they don't share with other frozen foods (except maybe icings and other cake related stuff.)

Were your cakes hot or warm when you placed them in the bag? I have had this happen mostly because I did not let the cake cool at room temp I have never had anything frezer burn that fast . So sorry

yeah, that is odd. I have never had that happen . In fact I had a cake in the freeze for the better part of a year. It still tasted great.

That is too bad, 10 cakes? Poor thing!

Just a thought, I wrap in saran wrap (one or two times max) and then cover in foil. Never had a problem.

Did you have baking soda in the freezer? That helps wih the odors and funny taste in foods. I also use saran wrap and foil. Good Luck.

If this happens again that you have to place a warm or hot cake in the freezer , let the cake come back up to room temp less its cover , add simple syurp and they will be fine. Just FYI I hat eyou had to throw all that cake out.

I freeze all my cakes straight from the oven HOT! I have never had even one freezerburn ever! But I use Press N Seal. I have even used sub zero freezers before again, with no freezer burn...not sure what could have happened with yours. That is really odd.
