hi all thumbs_up.gif i need advice on how to keep a cake fresh and moist overnight.

whenever ive made cakes in the past ive allways baked, crumb coated and decorated the cake all on the same day but i dont always have the time to do it all in one day and after joining cc ive noticed that many people comment on that its actually better to bake one day then decorate the next, so i was wondering how do you guys keep the cakes moist till the next day, should i put the cake in the fridge? or just cover it with something and if so what? or should i just keep the cake in an air tight container?

hope ive made sence icon_smile.gif

Definitely wrap in plastic wrap. If I'm decorating the next day, I personally wrap and put in fridge, but I know many people leave theirs out. I like having a cold cake to decorate. I think it's easier. That's just my two cents. Hope you find what works best for you.

I also wrap the individual layers in plastic wrap unfrosted and place in the fridge. I probably over wrap them, but I don't want the air in the fridge to dry them out. So problems!!

the fridge will dry out cake and other breads and baked goods. Properly wrapped, the counter is fine. Assuming you're not using perishable fillings that have to be refrigerated.

I also wrap mine really good with saran and place in my cold garage on a cake table.I never have a problem with them being dry etc..
