Cakes and their ingredients have changed over time, but our enjoyment of them hasn't. We like cakes because of their variety.
Whether you enjoy a homemade chocolate layer cake or your mom's white cake recipe, chances are you may end up with a little bit of leftover.
In the extremely unlikely event that this situation arises, we have a simple solution that will prevent your cake from becoming dry.
A TikToker named Daniela reveals a clever trick to prevent leftover cake from drying out in a video that has received 64.6k likes and a lot of chitchat.
In the video, Daniela softly covers the exposed edges of the cake where the wedge has been sliced with a rectangular piece of parchment paper.
This will prevent your cake from being dry and hard the next morning, when you want to enjoy a slice with your morning coffee.
You may also do this with ice cream, if you have any leftovers, to prevent freezer burn. Excellent to know!
The Spruce Eats advises that the most important thing to remember when it comes to keeping your leftover cake moist is not to store it in the refrigerator.
It will stale faster than if left out. After three days at room temperature, the remaining cake should better be frozen.
