There is a super-secret secret to ensuring your cake is moist and fresh as can be when it is served. Bake your cake just as you normally would. Allow the cake to cool in the pan, and then carefully lift out of the pan and wrap completely in an air-tight Saran Wrap covering. Place the cake packages in the freezer overnight.
The next day, unwrap the cake and frost as normal. Ready to serve up nice and moist for your crowd! And the best part, it gives you a day or two of advance prep time!
