Freezing cheesecake

Hello - if I make a cheesecake today would it be ok to freeze until Tuesday?

yes cheesecake will freeze well Let to thaw slowly on bench than thaw in microwave

Thank you. My daughter is coming home for a few days and wants to take one back to Blenheim with her. Thought if I froze it then it may travel back better

But then if she has an slight accident, and the frozen cheesecake flies up and dongs her one. ouch!

purplefalcon, I recommend that the still-frozen cheesecake is well wrapped and put into a plastic bag, then put into your daughter's checked-in luggage. It is colder in the luggage hold than in the cabin so IMO best not put into her hand luggage. :-))

Haha I will put in in the boot while I drive her to Wellington to catch her flight

Thanks. I have a tin that will fit into a Tupperware container with a lid. I thought I would then wrap the container in gladwrap as well as putting it in a plastic bag. She's only been based on Blenheim a short time but has told colleagues I make good cheesecakes so am making her a jellytip one

Here you go Timturtle http://www.stuff.co.nz/stuff-nation/assignments/share-your-sweet-sweet-recipes/12260643/Reader-recipe-Jelly-Tip-chocolate-cheesecake.

With not being able to get jellytip biscuits at the moment I am going to use toffeepops with the malt biscuits

Glad Wrap would be ok for leaks but newspaper is a better insulator

Thanks I will wrap it in newspaper instead.
