Freezing and defrosting guidelines

Bake according to the recipe but stop before adding decoration. Allow to cool completely. Wrap well in clingfilm and tin foil (to prevent freezer burn) and freeze for up to 3 months.

If you wish to add icing or decoration, add it after the baked goods have fully defrosted and are at room temperature.
