Here goes the tragic tale of most happy birthday cake:
DAY of PARTY = absolutely delicious, of course. BRAVO, Mom!
But there are leftovers, so cover with Saran Wrap = smudgy frosting
DAY THREE= start hacking away hard, crumbly edges nobody wants…
If you get to DAY FOUR, it = slide once charming, now rock hard cake into trash can (hope kiddos don’t see, while regretting you didn’t get to it a day earlier. )
For a HAPPY ENDING
Cut leftover cake into pieces; wrap individually in foil and then place each slice in a ziploc bag to freeze.
Now the CLEVER PART… To keep cake from drying out: cover nonfrosted portions with sliced bread and fasten with toothpicks. Then seal in a plastic container.
