It seems you can either have a moist cake (and plain) or a pretty cake (and stale)... I'm definately planning on doing more research on this! Cake was baked on Wednesday, cut on Thursday afternoon, built and iced on Thursday evening, and fell apart by Friday morning!
I piped some more chocolate icing on the one end and glued the piece back and am now propping the two sides up with muffins ;) Dear Daughter does not seem to mind. She says she LOVES IT :D
I do wonder what Cake Boss's cakes actually taste like!
