Can I Freeze Blueberry Pudding Cake?

Yes, this blueberry pudding cake freezes quite well as the texture of the pudding won’t change much; it’s sort of like ice cream when frozen (p.s. if you have extra blueberries, here is how to freeze them).

To freeze, cover the pudding cake with plastic wrap and then transfer into the freezer. You can keep the cake frozen like this for up to 6 months.
