It is sweltering here but have baked a bakewell cake( sponge with almond flavour and cherry jam filling and iced top)
Should i be storing in an airtight tin in fridge or will that dry it out too much? Need it for tomorrow?
Thank you!

Wow I am in exactly the same boat with a lemon drizzle and a million cupcakes!! I currently alternating them in the fridge (not room for all) but wondering the exact same thing...

When we lived in the Med... Iced cakes went in the fridge. Uniced in dark, cool cupboards.

I made a red velvet cake yesterday and put it reluctantly in the fridge as was advised because of the cream cheese frosting - I wouldn't put a cake with normal icing in the fridge. Stick it in a shady room.
