Freezing cakes

I asked on chat, but no-one answered! Can I make mini carrot cakes in paper cases and then defrost them or is that a bad idea? I have to make a birthday cake for DS to take into class so I thought individual ones would be easier. Can't make it the day before as that is when his birthday party is (nor can I make it the day before and keep in fridge as I have very limited fridge space so will be using it for party food).

The recipe I have is this one here from bbc website.

Yes it says on the recipe it's freezable smile

I've frozen plain fairy cakes before and it worked really well.

in the paper cases? I'm a little worried the paper would go soggy. Or is it a special type of paper they use?

Or you could make it 2 days before, there's nothing in it that needs to be kept in the fridge you can just keep in a cake tin. Cakes are fine kept for a week or so.

I know, but two days before I will be making the cake for his birthday party and that will go in my cake tin! I really don't have storage space, just a freezer in the cellar. Ideally I would make it tomorrow to be eaten a week on Friday. I'm not often at home during the week but tomorrow I'm waiting in for a delivery.

And I suppose my question is not really can I freeze it but what do I freeze and defrost it in?

Yesthey will be fine in the cases, I often do this with muffins.

Cross posted - freeze on Tupperware or a freezer bag then leave to defrost in whatever you have frozen then in!

Yes I just froze them in the cases and they were fine. If you freeze them on a baking tray they won't stick together then you can transfer to a tupperware or bag. Or actually, freeze in the Tupperware but separate the layers with greaseproof paper. I'd pop them on a plate to defrost.

Actually what am I talking about? With a party the day before to cater for, I'd buy some ready made

Only because I'm a lazy bugger, your cakes sound delicious OP

I'd need a three hour round trip to do that though, so it's probably quicker to make the cakes!

Thank you. I will freeze in the cases in a Tupperware if I can find one.
