Never suffer a dry, stale cake again!
There's nothing quite as tantalising as a big birthday cake. The soft, creamy frosting hides the mystery flavour of fluffy cake inside.
A big slice of your favourite cake will no doubt take you right back to some of the best moments of childhood.
There is a problem with a big celebration cake though: they're hard to finish. After the party is over, you are always left with half a big cake, losing moisture and texture by the minute.
You don't even have the opportunity to enjoy a piece in the coming days, as cake quickly dries out and goes stale.
But, now there is a genius hack that saves any stale cake.
Shared on Reddit's foodhack sub-forum, a genius home cook revealed that all you need to prevent your cake from drying out is...a slice of bread.
After cutting into a cake, use toothpicks to cover the exposed portion with piece of bread to keep cake nice and soft. from r/foodhacks
"After cutting into a cake, use toothpicks to cover the exposed portion with [a] piece of bread to keep cake nice and soft," wrote the poster, along with an image of a sliced cake protected by white bread.
Others also shared that if you're dealing with stale cupcakes instead of a single cake, you can place them in a sealed bag along with a slice of bread and wait for them to "steal" the bread's moisture.
Once the bread is dry and hard, you'll know your cakes have bounced back to life.
