10 Foods You Didn’t Know You Could Freeze

Diet and Nutrition News & Advice, Featured, Mobile Slider Featured

There’s nothing worse that seeing an expensive food item thrown in the trash because it went bad. To prevent this, we often package our favorite foods and put them in the freezer, where they can keep for months beyond their expiry dates.

Unfortunately, not all foods freeze well, meaning they taste terrible when they’re thawed and given a second chance at the dinner table. So, which foods are better for freezing?

 

1. Cake

The mere sight of cake is often enough to bring feelings of joy and happiness to a group of people. Whether it’s a birthday celebration, wedding, or holiday get-together, cake is always a popular choice.

But did you know that cake can be frozen? The key is to wrap a baked cake in cling film and put it in the freezer before putting on the icing, which doesn’t tend to freeze quite as well. Overall, if you’re worried about time on the day you make the cake, it may be smart to freeze the cake beforehand and just put together the icing when it’s needed.
