Storing and Freezing:

  • Store this bread at room temperature, covered with clear wrap. It will stay fresh for several days.
  • If planning to freeze this bread, I would recommend not drizzling the icing on top. It will not hold when frozen and will fall apart and even completely fall off when thawed.
