I have to make a heap of desserts for Christmas and am hoping to start baking in November and freeze them until needed. So far l'm looking at a couple of cheesecakes, a caramel tart, Mars bar slice, and a chocolate torte - can these be frozen? What is the best way to wrap them in the freezer? Any other suggestions for desserts that are good to freeze?

You can freeze most cakes and tarts. Just think bout the food you get from the supermarket. Most of their fruit pies and tarts are able to be frozen. I've frozen cup cakes, biscuits, and scones, and they have all come out fine. The best thing to do is wrap them in a plastic film bag and seal them with a rubber band.

Remember that many Christmas desserts don't need freezing as they mature the long they are left to stand - Christmas pudding, Christmas cake, etc.
Thanks Bryony - do you freeze cupcakes with the icing? Or ice them once defrosted?
I have never frozen cup cakes with icing before, but you can do it. It is best, however to chill the cakes uncovered first, so that the icing is firm. Then you can wrap them up.
Mudcakes freeze really well. They also taste nice frozen. ;) I know most basic cakes will freeze well as long as you're not icing them. I'm not sure if I'd freeze many cheesecakes or tarts, but maybe someone else has experience with freezing these?
That should be, as long as you're not icing them before freezing. Obviously you can ice them afterwards! :)
Mudcake is a great idea, thanks Natasha!
Most cheesecakes freeze fairly well, but my all time favourite is a raspberry pie! Bake, allow to cool completely, seal it in a labelled freezer bag then thaw when desired!
Have never heard of a raspberry pie but it sounds delicious!
Cakes are best eaten immediately in my opinion.
