Can Italian Cream Cake be stored?

Well, as the cake is so delicious, how would anybody leave it on the plate? Still, if you want to store the cake, then refrigerate it. You can eat the cold cake afterwards as well. There is no need to wait for the cake to return to room temperature. If still, you want less cold, then let it warm for thirty minutes before serving the guests. 

I want to freeze my cake. Is it safe?

Yes, you may freeze your Italian cream cake. Put your cake in the freezer and then you can preserve it for three to four months. You can then put the cake on the counter to thaw or refrigerate it overnight. 

Why is cream cheese essential for the frosting of cake?

The reason is its consistency and nature. It is thick in consistency and is soft. At room temperature, it becomes extra creamy. If the cream is not softened enough at room temperature, then it becomes hard to mix it up. 

Creamy cakes are up on the menu for every tea party. Italian creamy cake is super delicious after the blend of flaked coconut and toasted pecans.
