Freezing

Hi,

Can I freeze Delia's double lemon drizzle with poppy seeds cake?

Also the ultimate carrot and coffee and walnut cakes (with out the fillings).

Thank you

Freezing Cakes

Hello Amanda,

All of these cakes freeze.

For the carrot cake and the walnut cake it depends on whom you are serving them too as to how you freeze them. We have frozen left over, filled cakes, very successfully in both large pieces and in portions.

However if you are serving them to guests I would fill them after they are defrosted.

Best wishes

Lovely thank you. I will freeze the sponges only as it won't take very long to fill them.

Can I freeze the Dark Jamaican ginger bread?

I successfully freeze lots of cakes - because I like baking but don't want to end up 50 stone, when I feel like having a baking day I make four or five cakes, slice them when cold and freeze the slices in boxes. Its so convenient when you fancy a piece of cake, have unexpected visitors or, as happens with me, you aren't well enough to bake. I make fruit cake (yeast recipe) for my neighbour who slices and freezes it and then toasts it for breakfast - its very successful. I also freeze Christmas cake sliced - you would think it wouldn't work but it does and a slice of it in the winter is lovely.... I have also frozen meringues successfully - they are very delicate but taste lovely.
