If it looks like its drying out just feed it some brandy but it shouldnt do :)

Wrap well in any kitchen paper.waxed etc. Then in a couple of towels. Never plastic wrap or bags. It will sweat. Foil is ok, but sometimes a reaction happens with the fruit and the metal in the foil. Paper first then foil should prevent this.

baking paper, clean newsprint or a brown paper bag if you have, then newspaper. I do about 6 layers all told. Store in a cool dark place until ready to ice and or eat.
