3) Baking cake at a lower temperature will help the cake rise much higherand bake more evenly.4) Do not bake the cake quickly at a high temperature.and don't remove hot cake out of a baking pan. otherwise the cake could fall apart and crack on top.
5) Can you freeze the cream cheese? Not recommended. The texture will change considerably. It will be more crumbly and less creamy once thawed. it won't be as creamy as it used to be. When frozen, the cream cheese's liquids and solids will separate and this will alter the texture of the cream cheese. Still, frozen and thawed cream cheese is safe to use in cooking and baking.
