Can I freeze un-used cake batter ?

by sonia

I hate nothing more then making a 6" cake and having all this cake batter left over!! I end up making mountains of cup cakes and everyone I know is totally caked out?!?!

not only that. It eats into my overhead....

can you advise?


From the editor:

Hi Sonia,

I understand your pain. The trouble is, cake batter that's been frozen really won't rise as well as fresh cake batter. What I would suggest is baking extra cakes, then wrapping them well and freezing the finished cake. As long as you double wrap them in cling wrap and a layer of aluminum foil, they'll keep well for up to a month and you wont' be wasting any more cake batter.

Thanks for your question.

make cake pops with your extra batter
by: Samee

Last year, the housing complex's Thanksgiving potluck I lived in was cancelled at the last minute. I had four dozen of cupcakes made for that event. Rather throw them away, what I did was make cake pops out of it. Peeled off the cupcake liners and crumbled them frosting and all. Gave them to my neighbors as Christmas treats (gift). If you got extra batter, baked them and make cake pops, at least our friends don't feel caked out!
