How to stop gluten-free sponges getting damp while being stored

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?

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.
