Thanks for the replies - apologies, I completely forgot to come back to this thread.

Mrspaddy - that's really kind of you thank you. Are there any recipes that you think would work particularly well for a bake sale?
I'm going to do lemon drizzle cake and coconut macaroons today I think.

banana bread does well after defrosting, also malt loaf tastes better a week after its been made

Lemon drizzle etc.. All freeze well. I have a great Mary Berry book from he 70s cooking for your freezer so if you want a recipe let me know. Also she recommends you don't ice them or fill them.

Fairy cakes work best.

Pretty much any cake will freeze. Just make sure you wrap it well and let it defrost before decorating.

I'll need to make a few things for a bake sale in a couple of weeks, but I don't have a lot of time in the few days before.

Any suggestions for cakes and bakes that can be make in advance/freeze really well?
