I just baked a cake but I'm not decorating it until tomorrow. What do I need to do so that the cake doesn't dry out? Should I put it in the fridge or leave it out? Do I wrap it in something? Please help. Thanks! icon_surprised.gif

For just overnight I wrap them in plastic wrap and put them in the fridge. Wrapped it will not dry out and I like to work with a slightly chilled cake. For longer than over night I double wrap in plastic and place in the freezer.

I'd wrap it and leave it out on the counter. Or I often leaves naked cakes in my cake carrier until I have time to get to it the next day.

After cooling on a rack for 10 mins, I cover the hot cake (top and sides) with plastic wrap while it sits on a paper towel covered rack. When completely cool, I put the whole thing inside a covered plastic storage box which sits on my counter until I am ready to work on it. I usually ice and decorate no sooner than 12 hours, but often as much as 24 hours later.
