I have a question about the recipe "Pear and Almond Cake" from Sarah Jampel. Can I freeze this cake? Need to start Thanksgiving baking.

I've never tried freezing this cake before, but I think that the texture might change. It's a pretty light and airy cake and I'd worry that freezing and thawing it might make it denser! I think, as Jeannine Doyle says in the comments, you'll lose the lift of the eggs.
