Mom's Genius Hack to Keep Cakes Fresh Is a Serious Game-Changer

Okay, who wants a piece of cake? We all do, of course. The cake is a terrific dessert. It’s moist and sweet. Plus, it’s topped with smooth, creamy icing. The cake is truly a guilty pleasure. It doesn’t matter if you’re eating it to celebrate a special occasion or baking it because it’s a Tuesday. Whatever reason you have for eating cake, we’ll support you. However, one of the most challenging parts of having leftover cake is keeping it fresh. Cake has a finite window of optimal freshness. However, there is a hack for preserving that new flavor.

In a TikTok video by content creator @athomewithshannon, she shares one of her incredible mom hacks for maintaining a fresh cake. It’s so simple we’re angry we didn’t think of it sooner. Where has this hack been?

Sure, we’ve all probably wrapped our cakes up, but if a piece of parchment paper can do the job, why use more than necessary? Let’s see how the TikTok viewers feel about this cake hack.
