How to Store a Frosted Cake – Whole, Uncut Cake

A whole cake that’s been frosted and not yet cut can be stored at room temperature for 4 to 5 days. Cover the entire cake with a cake container or a large bowl. If you need to keep the whole cake for more than 5 days, put it in the fridge in a cake storage container. You can also let it cool for 15 minutes in the fridge until the frosting hardens. Once the icing is hard, cover it in plastic wrap and return it to the fridge.

How to Store a Frosted Cake – Cut Cake

Cut cakes dry out faster than uncut cakes. To prevent the cake from losing moisture, cover the cut edges with extra frosting or a piece of plastic wrap. Store in a cake container or under a bowl for up to 3 days. After 3 days, move the cake to the fridge in a cake container or follow the above directions and store it with plastic wrap.
