Stor­ing Christ­mas cakes

Cut and fold lin­ing pa­per over top of cake still in pan. Cover top of pan tightly with foil to trap steam and give cake a softer sur­face. Wrap pan in a towel; leave it for 12 hours, un­til cold. If cake is to be dec­o­rated, in­vert hot foil-cov­ered cake, still in pan, onto a board. Cover with a towel. The weight of cake will flat­ten the top. When cold, re­move cake from pan, leav­ing lin­ing pa­per in­tact; wrap tightly in plas­tic wrap, then foil. Can be stored in a cool, dry place for up to six months, or in the fridge or freezer for up to a year.
