Dried Out Cake in Display Case

12412 Views 8 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  foodpump
I'm in the process of filling a display case with various desserts andbpastries. Any tips on how I can keep my individual cake servings from drying out? I'm doing some mousse cakes, but I'd like to add some nice carrot or chocolate layer cake servings as well.

My suggestion is not to display your individual cake slices as individual cake slices. Display the whole cake, pre-scored, and have the servers (assuming you have front-end people), slice it to order. The remaining cut sides of the cake should then have plastic wrap pressed neatly against them to prevent drying out. Keeping the cake whole is the BEST way to keep it as fresh as possible. Once a cake becomes a cake slice, the shelf life is shortened considerably.
