Tips

Moister Cake & Easy to Frost

Moister Cake & Easy to Frost

After you cool the cakes in the cake pans, loosen the cakes in the pan and turn upside down on a piece of reynolds wrap...large enough to wrap each layer like a package. Put each layer in the freezer marked with flavor and cake size. Prepare your boards, buttercream, filling etc. When you take frozen cakes from the freezer you will notice that one side is flatter and gives a crisper edge for the top layers. The cake will be easy to frost,not drag crumbs as much and is the moistest cake ever.
