Can you freeze cheesecake?

I've never had to worry about freezing a cheesecake...somehow it always disappears within a day...
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?
Thanks!

I say give it a go. What have you got to lose? Otherwise you will just end up throwing it out. The only part I would think might get a bit funky would be any topping. Otherwise I think if you wrap it well the cheesecake will be fine.

I see store bought cheesecakes in the freezer all the time at the grocery store, so I don't know why you could not freeze your cheesecake. I agree with Alix the topping might get a little weird, but the rest of the cheesecake should be fine. As far as the storage method it might be best to wrap it well in plastic wrap and place in a large freezer bag. Good luck and let us know how it works out.

I agree with sierracook. If you haven't frozen it yet if it is not already cut into serving size pieces and put foil between the slices or wrap them individually so you can thaw just one if you want to.

Foil between the slices is a great idea. I have also seen people place waxed paper between the slices.

I would suggest using wax paper instead of foil, foil will cause freezer burn on the delicate cake faster.

Sam's Club sells them frozen with parchment paper between the slices. Waxed would probably work fine.

That's my trick, it works like a charm

Thanks all! It's in the freezer in single portion slices (or at least single sized for most normal people, tiny for me) and fortunately it was one without any toppings. I'll take out a slice in a week or two and let you know how it went.
