In this lesson, cake designer Rachael Teufel explains the big impact storage can have on your finished product. After your cakes have cooled, Rachael shows you how she wraps them to store them overnight in the refrigerator to seal in all of the flavor and moisture.

Along the way, Rachael shares valuable insight on the benefits of allowing your cake to rest prior to filling, icing, and decorating.
