How to Store Sheet Cake

Serve: Cherry Chocolate Cake can be at room temperature for up 4 days. Keep the sheet pan covered with plastic wrap or foil in a cool, dry place or transfer to an airtight container.

Store: You can keep your cake in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, but I recommend bringing it to room temperature prior to serving.

Freeze: Freeze directly in the sheet pan, tightly covered in plastic wrap and then aluminum foil, for up to 4 months. Thaw on counter, uncovered, prior to serving.
