1. Is it necessary to refrigerate my chocolate cake?
Most cakes can be stored at room temperature for two days. When in doubt, always refrigerate. They last longer, especially if the weather is too humid or your kitchen gets too hot.
2. When frosting a chocolate cake, how do you avoid it from crumbling?
Before frosting the chocolate cake, make sure it has totally cooled. Freezing the cake layers before frosting is a great approach to avoid crumbling. Crumb coating, or frosting the chocolate cake in a thin layer, captures crumbs and keeps it moist.
3. Why is my chocolate cake so dry?
Check the following items: Are you sure you used the exact ingredients and that you measured them properly? Is the temperature in your oven set properly? Is the cake underbaked? In such instances, a simple syrup can help compensate for the cake's dryness by adding moisture. Boil sugar and water in equal parts, then let them cool before brushing them onto the cake layers.
