If you wish to freeze dessert: Cool quickly to retain freshness. (Dairy and egg based dishes should cool in refrigerator.) Place the amounts you will use at one time in freezer-proof containers or on sheets of aluminum foil. Seal tightly. If using foil, wrap and fold edges to seal and place on a flat baking sheet (to preserve shape) and place in freezer until frozen.
