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.
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?
