Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made a classic sponge cake in three tiers for Thanksgiving. I had to bake it on Monday and decorate on Tuesday so I knew I would need to use this method to keep my cake fresh until Thursday. It worked like a charm and the cake was quite delicious. I filled it with a pistachio filling and used my go-to buttercream icing from my Wilton Level One Class. Delicious.
