Hi Swayman,

 

Solution 1: Let it Steep
Poured boiling water in a teacup and then suspended the cupcake in a tea strainer above. Boiling water was only poured to below the point where the strainer reached, so that the water didn't touch the wrapper.
The reasoning: The steaming water would infuse, and re-moisten, the cake.
The result: The texture of the sides and bottom of the cake did benefit from the steaming, however the inside of the cake was still rather hard and stale-tasting. The frosting began to melt on the sides. Overall, not worth the annoyance.

 

Solution 2: It's a Wrap
Wrapped the cake in a wet paper towel and then microwaved it for 20 seconds (in two ten-second intervals).
The result: While i can't explain the science behind it, i can say that it worked! The cake was warmed and seemed to have been nicely moistened all the way through; the frosting was ever so slightly melty around the edges, but still solid. It is important to note, however, that if you use this method, the cake ought to be consumed immediately.

Thank you!! I think my new goal will be to avoid a dried out cake!!

For everyone else that wanted to know, I made another cake Tuesday, froze it (wrapped in Saran Wrap and foil) We'd morning I removed it brushed on a simple syrup. Not a whole lot because I noticed the cake was pretty "mushy" idk if that's a term that actually fits it. But I could tell it was still pretty moist. Then I crumb coated and frosted. I left it at room temp wrapped tightly in a cake box and delivered this am. The customer told me it was very moist and yummy and the frosting was soft!! I feel like my mistake on the first cake was putting it into the fridge.
