How to keep this sheet cake fresh

The raw cake mixture is thick and fudgy and quite different to any other chocolate cake mixtures I’ve made before. Once cooked, the cake is beautifully moist and has the slightest hint of apple to taste. If you don’t have time to finish it off right away, wrap it up in tinfoil and only take it out to ice a few days later. It will be still moist and fudgy.

You can also easily freeze this aplle chocolate cake.
