Can Cheesecake Be frozen

Yes, cheesecake can be frozen, and it’s a great way to preserve it for later enjoyment. Freezing cheesecake helps extend its shelf life and allows you to savor this delectable dessert over an extended period.

To freeze cheesecake, ensure it has cooled completely. Next, wrap it securely in plastic wrap, and for added protection, wrap it in aluminum foil. You can also slice it into individual portions before freezing, with parchment paper between the slices to prevent sticking.
