Sorry if this is a rather stupid question. I don't bake often but today baked a yummy chocolate fudge cake (which I served warm with ice cream for anyone interested). How do I now store the three quarters that are left? And how long will it last? Does it need to go in the fridge or on the side? I don't have a giant air tight container if that is what you would suggest. If that is the case would the microwave be suitable?

Store cake? I don't understand the question!

I'll look after it for you... grin

How long will it last? grin. 3 minutes in this house

Har har. Unfortunately the storage container that is my belly is full to capacity.

Anyone local to me is welcome to a slice.

But seriously? ?

Do you have a mixing bowl that would fit over the top of it, OP?

Ooo. Yes, that I do. Fridge or no fridge?

You could stick it in a big bowl and clingfilm over the top to stop it drying out. Probably better to store it in your tummy though.

Don't put it in the fridge. It will go really stale.

My FIL once took a cake I'd made out of its perfectly adequate airtight tin and put it in the fridge. It was inedible the next day. I could have killed him.

Thank you all. I'll go remove it from the microwave.

Wherever you store it, get 2 slices of bread & stuck one on each open side of the cake. This way apparently the bread goes dry & the cake stays moist. No idea if it works but anythings with a try smile

No fridge. Mixing bowl as cake dome. It will be fine.

I never thought to out a mixing bowl over a big cake. Well done mn, you have taught me something new and useful today!
But no, don't put cake in the fridge.
