The best way of keeping a cake fresh?

venna2, Apr 9, 1:05am
I'm hosting a meeting at my place tomorrow and another one on Friday. I've just made a quince cake and a quince/feijoa loaf (as I've had both quinces and feijoas on hand), and also want to make a feijoa orange cake (gluten free) for tomorrow.

Should I wait until tomorrow morning before making the feijoa orange cake? If I make it this afternoon, how can I best keep it fresh and tasty until tomorrow afternoon (that includes the quince cake and loaf made today)? I imagine the fridge would make them a bit dry? Wrap them in towels? Or is there some other way? Many thanks!

In a tin with a slice of apple in it, in the fridge

Yep, in the fridge but take it out an hour plus at least beforehand to be of natural temperature, it brings it back to normal.

I wouldn't put in the fridge.

If you are aiming to bake and then eat one of them on Friday, I would bake and then freeze.
Then defrost.

Mine don't last long enough to go stale - try a different recipe.

I'd do that . but I'd have to somehow find some more quinces as the first cake used them all. As I do want to make a quince cake as the person who gave me the quinces will be here.
