I'm baking a 2 tier cake for my daughters 2nd birthday on Saturday. I'm baking the cakes tonight and decorating it tomorrow night. My question is this, should I bake, wrap and freeze the cakes tonight and then set them out in the morning? Or should I not even bother with the freezing since I'm decorating tomorrow night? And if I don't freeze them how should I store them? In just an air tight container? Refrigerator? Help!

I would wrap them and leave them at room temp. The fridge is the perfect environment to dry your cake out.

I would wrap them in cling wrap (plastic wrap) or put then in an air tight container and leave at room temp.

I would wrap and freeze. Even overnight in the freezer will help moisten your cakes.

I bake my cakes and set them to cool on cooling racks. I cover them with clean kitchen towels and leave them overnight. When I turn them out on to the rack I put a layer of paper towels underneath between the cake and rack and then cover with the kitchen towels. Been doing it this way for years and my cakes never dry out. I decorate the second night and all is good.
