Freezing Gluten Free Cakes
Posted 02 March 2012 - 09:57 AM
This is my first post as I can usually find all the answer to my questions via the website or google; however, I have a query that has stumped me.
My fiancee and I are getting married next March and we want to have a gluten free/dairy free/egg free wedding cake; which I will be making. However, I wanted the whole wedding to be gluten/dairy free because I want it to be inclusive of us and a few other guests that we have (including children) who are gluten sensitive/intolerant.
Because of this, I will be making the cakes/cupcakes myself and I usually keep them frozen in the freezer until we need them; however I have only ever kept them in for a month or less. Does anyone know how long in advance I can start this undertaking? I don't want freezer burn on them, but I don't want to be baking tons of cupcakes and such a week before the wedding either.
I was thinking of using the Betty Crocker gluten-free mixes- has anyone ever frozen these for any length of time?
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

If you add choc chips (dark or semi-sweet) to the chocolate cake mix you get the most sinful chocolate cake...it is what I make for everyone's birthdays -- family, co-workers, etc. -- gluten eaters as well as non gluten eaters all love it
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/27/09 diagnosed fibromyalgia - supplemented with amino acids - improvement followed by substantial deterioration
maybe one good hour per day for ~17 months
8/10/11 - Elimination Diet for Autoimmune Disease - incredible improvement along with clear reactions to most high lectin foods
only remaining symptom - severe heat intolerance / reaction to heat, humidity and exercise
Tomato, Pepper, Potato, Peanut, Soy, Bean, Pea, Citrus, Pineapple, Avocado, Shellfish, Dairy, Grain, Nut and Seed FREE
3/1/12 - Horrible flare -- same ol' symptoms but worse ~ 7/1/12 - Endo: Active Celiac 3+ years - as gluten-free as humanly possible.
11/15/12 - Improving once again - Almonds back - Eggs gone
12/1/12 - Histamine containing and inducing foods FREE - finally the last piece of the puzzle (I hope) -- the cause of my heat/exercise "allergy"...
...this was one of my earliest symptoms as a child -- the enzyme (DAO) needed to regulate histamine is created in the small intestine.
If you have read this far - hang in there - obtaining health with any AI is a marathon, not a sprint!
