How to Store Black Forest Cake?
Black Forest Cake should be stored in the refrigerator. Since it contains whipped cream, it should not be kept at room temperature for a long time. However, it can be prepared in advance.
After slicing the cake, wrap the cut part of the cake with cling film or parchment paper to prevent it from drying out. After serving, put it in the refrigerator. You can store it this way for 1-2 days. Then the consistency of the whipped cream may deteriorate. So, it is best to consume immediately.
