TIP: Cake texture is at its best when consumed within one day. To prevent angel food cake from drying out, store in a container in the refrigerator. Angel food cake will keep for 4-5 days in the refrigerator or up to 1 month in the freezer. If you don’t have an angel food cake pan you can use a cake or tube pan and invert it over a bottle or a funnel to let angel food cake cool down.
