If you love Pastel Bakes’ cakes and cupcakes, you might be wondering how to store them properly so that they stay fresh and delicious. Whether you order online or visit our bakery in Toronto, you can enjoy our halal cakes and cupcakes for days if you follow these simple tips.
Can cakes be frozen or left out?
The answer depends on the type of cake and the frosting. Some cakes are better off at room temperature, while others need to be refrigerated or frozen.
- If your cake has a whipped cream frosting, a fresh fruit filling, or a heat-sensitive frosting like Swiss meringue buttercream, it’s best to keep it chilled in the refrigerator. These ingredients can spoil or melt if left out for too long.
- If your cake has a buttercream frosting, a ganache coating, or a fondant covering, it can stay at room temperature in an airtight container. These ingredients are more stable and can withstand warmer temperatures.
- If you want to store your cake for longer than 3 days, you can freeze it in a freezer-safe container. Freezing can preserve the quality and flavor of your cake for up to 3 months. However, you need to wrap your cake well to prevent freezer burn and moisture loss.
Will cakes dry out in the fridge?Refrigerating a cake can dry it out because the humidity in the fridge can cause the cake to lose its moisture. The best way to avoid this is to wrap the cake in plastic wrap or aluminum foil before putting it in the fridge. This will create a barrier that will keep the cake from drying out.
Another way to prevent your cake from drying out in the fridge is to fortify it with frosting. Frosting acts as a natural preservative that seals in the moisture of the cake. If you have a sliced cake, you can cover the exposed edges with more frosting to keep them from drying out.
How to thaw a frozen cake
If you have a frozen cake, you need to thaw it properly before serving. The best way to thaw a frozen cake is to transfer it from the freezer to the refrigerator and let it thaw overnight. This will allow the cake to thaw gradually and evenly, without affecting its texture or flavor.
If you are in a hurry, you can thaw a frozen cake at room temperature, but you need to be careful. If your cake has a perishable or heat-sensitive frosting or filling, you need to unwrap it and put it on a plate or a cake stand. This will allow the frosting or filling to thaw faster than the cake, preventing it from melting or spoiling.
If your cake has a buttercream frosting, a ganache coating, or a fondant covering, you need to keep it wrapped until it is completely thawed. This will prevent condensation from forming on the surface of the cake, which can make it soggy or sticky.
