I bet it will work.

But because you see things frozen in the supermarket doesn't mean that they always freeze well at home. Commercial frozen food is often "flash frozen," something you can't do at home. Well, I can't, at least.

That said, I freeze just about everything useful that I would ordinarily have to throw away.

At my job, we get frozen cheesecake all the time. It's wrapped in plastic, that we have to remove before thawing. If it's already sliced (which is usually is), there is waxed paper or parchemtn between the slices.

jennyema is right, though. Commercially-made cheesecake is flash-frozen in a blast freezer at -50F or colder.

Cheesecake is my mother's absolutely favorite 'food group' so I have sent to her, every mother's day, a cheesecake sampler and my sis slices them for her and freezes. It really does work great.

My boss gets us a frozen cheesecake every Christmas season and the individual slices are separated with parchment paper. It seems to freeze just fine.

I made 30 Cheesecakes for my Cousins wedding and froze every last one of them. I think you'll be just fine.. I used Pre-Cut Parchment and I ordered some pastry boxes just for the 9 inch Cheesecakes..

Seemed to work just fine.. Now to find a freezer for 30 cheesecakes.. :)

but, I bought one 2 days ago and it's so huge that we've only gone through half of it. Can it be frozen? If so, what's the best method?
I don't see why not i see them in the store all of the time
