If you wrap muffins or breads in foil or plastic wrap before they are frozen, you should spray with nonstick spray. Otherwise it will be a mess. I also have learned to spray the foil before wrapping it around other dishes like lasagna, etc or else the cheese will stick. You can also freeze muffins or cupcakes in plastic ware with a lid, unwrapped and just take one out at a time. If the container is deep enough, you can even do two layers with some wax paper in between. That's a trick I learned from Grandma. She's 92 and forever baking and pulling stuff out of the freezer when we go over. Brownies, (already cut individually), toffee bars, lemon poppy seed bread, etc.

What about cake? I just made a gluten free vanilla cake with chocolate icing and raspberry preserves filling. Anyone think I can try to freeze it? We have so much fruit this week, that we don't need the cake right now.

I would!  I would do it just like I mentioned....in a tupperware thing, already cut into individual slices.  Then when you want some, just take out the number of pieces you want and let it thaw, or nuke it for a few seconds.

I freeze my GF cakes all the time.  I agree with PP about slicing them and freezing them then store wrapped individually.  This way I can pull out a slice here and there for the kids when we go to parties and I don't have to make a cake every time!

Two strombolis and two pizza in the freezer.

 

And, while the oven (and house) was hot, a birthday cake for DH's birthday tomorrow; chocolate espresso toffee cake.

I feel SO lucky... I have a group of friends who have organized a "meal train" for me for after the baby arrives. Basically, they schedule each other out for a few weeks after the birth, and one person brings a meal every day with things on a list that I've specified. That way, I get a visitor every evening (as a single mom, I find this less exhausting and more welcome than most families, I guess) who brings a meal, visits and eats it with me, cleans up and then leaves. I've been a part of these for others in our group and it is just SO cool. It's been a tradition since before I joined this group of women... but if I ever moved, I would start this tradition wherever I went!


Moo.

I've frozen mini-quiches and they were totally fine and tasty.

It's very sad when the chocolate iced cake you "froze" to try and stock up for after the baby comes is almost gone because you couldn't control your cravings! bag.gif
