Mandarin pancakes - Storage question

Hi i am preparing a chinese buffet next weekend. So to save me some time on the day i was going to make the pancakes the day before and put them in the fridge. Will that be ok or will they come out all soggy.

Thanks for your help

Pancakes are quickly reheated, so in order to avoid them getting soggy, I would send them straight to the freezer after making them.

There is a whole industry dedicated to frozen pancakes and waffles and getting them as fresh as possible to your table. Freezing, not refrigerating, I would think, is the way to go.

I figured as much, since I've had that dish several times - they are basically crepes but the freezing still applies. If you have doubts, separate each one with a layer of waxed paper. Good luck and have fun!
