I took a class a few years ago and one of the biggest tips I learned was to cover your cake as soon as it comes out of the oven with foil and let it cool to room temp, with the foil in place.
I don't know if thats what makes my cake moist but they are!!
PS....I always use the cheap stuff from the dollar store!!!

do you leave it in the pan? or take it out than cover in foil? What do you do if you are icing cake the next day?

I just leave it in the pan to cool just covered in foil...sometimes when I am in a hurry I let cool as long as I can on the counter and I move it to the fridge to finish once it cools you can pop it out and cover it in plastic wrap or what ever, I have doubles and triples of pans so I usually just leave them in the pan covered until I am ready for them then just pop them out. They really do stay moist, it traps all the heat and of course steam in and it stays in your cake.

I always freeze the cakes and then pull it out of the freezer and put the icing on it when it is still frozen. I think the icing helps to keep the moisture in when the cake thaws. Not sure if that is true but, thats how I do my cakes and they are always moist.
Have a nice weekend
