Have made a traybake madeira style cake for dd's 5th birthday party on Saturday.
It's all cooled and seems OK. Party is Saturday morning, so would prefer not to cut and ice it that morning (its going to be a butterfly hopefully). So should I wrap it up and freeze it until tomorrow when I'll cut and ice it, or could I just wrap it up well and put it somewhere cool for tonight and most of tomorrow? Have never frozen cake before.... Also could I make fairy cakes tonight and freeze them too????
Both can definitely be frozen and will be fine, especially for kids, who will only lick the icing and then crumble the rest on the floor anyway But personally I wouldn't bother freezing either as the party is only 48 hours after you made them (think that's right?) Well-wrapped Madeira will easily keep for a week or longer without drying out and fairy cakes will be fine for a day or two.
