Freezing your Sponge!!!

Hi Guys,

In one of Pauls tutorials he mentions that you can freeze sponge for upto 3 months…now I know he is a Pro…but I am so scared to do this. Has anyone done this and has it affected the quality of the sponge??? x

Hi Deidre

Paul is correct, you can freeze cakes for three months as long as you wrap them up really well. Here’s what I do, wrap in three or four layers of cling film, then in parchment paper and then in foil. I place the wrapped cake or cakes in a card board box and put in the freezer. Wrapping properly reduces the risk of cakes getting freezer burn. Defrost cakes at room temperature still in the wrapping to keep moisture in but decorate while still very cold for better handling.

You can also keep your sponge cake nice and moist by soaking them in simple syrup. If you put in the search box ‘shelf life’ you’ll see my answer on how to make and use it. Good luck with your orders. x
