    • Hi Sonya,

      Great question, sorry to say we haven’t tried freezing. The cake would freeze fine and I’ve done a bit of searching on the cream cheese frosting. By all accounts that freezes well too. Best to thaw in the fridge or at room temp and the frosting my sweat slightly but due to the high fat content it is perfect for freezing. Happy baking! Julia
