So, how to freeze and save cake for a year? My mom got it right:
Stored in cake box from our cake maker. This box was completely taped up - so no air getting in the cracks!
Inside the box, the cake in 5 layers of foil - wrapped in different directions.
THEN under the foil, it was wrapped in another 5 layers - this time of saran wrap, wrapped in different directions.
I could smell the amazing cake and it looked very pretty - still!
It seriously tastes just as it did one year ago. And still eating it! :)
