I am making a cake to take to work this weekend. After we cut it, how do we keep it fresh? (fondat, so I no not to refridgerate it)
Cover with a clean towel? Saran wrap? I dont have a cake box

saran wrap, tin foil, whatever. a towel would do, but no being air tight, it isnt perfect, it will still dry out. any air tight box will do, if you have anything like tupperwear hanging about.

Also, fold foil into a V form and cover the sliced area and the cover the entire cake with platic wrap.

I thought fondant wasnt supposed to be in an airtight container, like tupperware?
Wouldnt putting saran wrap on it make it sort of air tight, softening my fondant and having it slide off the cake?

i sometimes wrap mine well with cling/saran wrap but mostly i end up putting it in an empty biscuit/cake tin and the cake and fondant keeps just fine

I always wrap my cakes with plastic wrap and I never had any problems.

whenever I took cakes into work, they didn't last long enough after being cut to start going stale. (Cake delivered to the break room at 8:00; was totally demolished LONG before lunch)

But if it's a concern, just drape saran over it.

I've always just taken plastic wrap or foil and folded it to cover just the cut part, you dont need to cover the entire cake. The cut edge may get a little dry but you can always shave off a really thin slice before you make a fresh cut, but seriously unless its a really small office I cant imagine it hanging around that long.

I refrigerated leftovers of a fondant covered cake at work, had no problems with it. Of course, it only had one night in the fridge and then it was finished up the next day.
