The Best Way to Cut Desserts:
Using a sharp knife is best to cut into desserts. After every cut, I like to carefully wipe off the blade with a clean paper towel. Then, this will help keep every cut clean and crisp without making a larger mess in the dessert.
Storing Desserts to Last Longer:
It is best to store desserts according to their directions. Most desserts can be made ahead of time to help with preparing for a celebration or holiday. Each dessert is usually stored in an airtight container to help savor the dessert and then it will also keep it fresh longer.
- Cakes and Brownies: Store in an airtight container for 3 to 5 days long and then let it sit at room temperature.
- Cheesecake, No Bake Desserts and Pies: Store in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days long or freezer for 1 month. When ready to serve then simply thaw it overnight in the refrigerator.
