Thanks for the bump soapnuts.

I think I might have to do more experimental batches. I could try:
a) storing some without icing them - see if that keeps things drier.
b) freezing them and seeing how well they defrost. If it buys me 24 hours it would be very useful.
c) not sure grin.

I'm making some GF cakes, my first time using GF self-raising flour.
So far I'm really impressed with the results, nice fluffy cake, not at all dry or crumbly but when I store them in a tupperware for even a few hours they quickly start to feel quite damp to touch.

They still taste good, but I need to be able to keep them for 36 hours in containers.

Any tips on how best to store GF sponge? Is there something I can put in the container to keep the air drier, or do I need to change the recipe?
