Cakes should be stored in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight or heat. Sponge cakes will stay fresh for up to a week if stored well, in its box, wrapped in cling film or, in an airtight container however during hot weather, like all foods shelf-life may decrease. To extend the shelf-life of cakes simply wrapped in cling film and freeze them for up to 4 months.
Cupcakes will keep for 2 to 3 days if stored well.
Wrapped well in cling film and in the freezer, fruitcakes can keep for up to 1 year.
DO NOT REFRIGERATE cakes as this will cause them to dry out.
