I just put a cake in the oven and realized I'm out of plastic wrap! I have started wrapping my cakes in plastic wrap after I take them out of the pan and it has made a big difference in the moistness of my cakes. I can't run to the store because my baby is napping it will be several hours before I can go!

Is there anything else that works as well? Will foil or damp paper towels be as effective???

TIA! icon_surprised.gif

I would say try the foil since you are in a pinch and see how that works. I have when I get into something and then end up not having what I need.

I've used plastic bags in a pinch. Like target or walmart bags you know?

I would think Target or Walmart bags are not clean enough nor food safe. Damp towel...another not so clean option and it will have lint. I think I would try wax paper and tape it closed or use foil.

Thank you for the advice! I ended up wrapping the cake in parchment (didn't have wax paper). The tape wouldn't stick to it, so I then wrapped the parchment in foil. I guess it's pretty well wrapped. Hopefully this should work icon_smile.gif
