I plan on baking cakes today (wed) that are going to be used Fri evening. I probably won't be able to frost them until tomorrow. In the meantime, how should I store the cakes so that they don't dry out??? Thanks for the help!

I wrap mine in plastic, put them in air tight storage bags and put them in the fridge.

Wrap the cakes good in plastic wrap, then foil and put in the freezer overnight. Take them out in the morning when you wake up to thaw in the wrappings - do not unwrap until they are thawed. Depending on what size they are, I would allow at least 4-5 hours for thawing, then they can be unwrapped and decorated! Store in the box you will transport it in - it will be fine because it will be covered in the icing.

OR if you will be at home Friday, you can take them out to thaw Thursday night, then decorate them Friday.

Freezing them at least a day before like that also helps in the moistness of the cake.

so- after you bake them. I take them out and put them on a cooling rack. I assume I wait until they're cool to wrap in saran wrap and freeze. Correct?

Wrap in saran wrap while still warm, then in foil. This is the only way I do my cakes and they are perfectly moist when thawed. They are also easier to tort while still semi-frozen.
