    McCarthy's Note:

    Taken from 'Baking and Desserts' cook book - Helpful Hint; This cake should keep for about three to five days if stored correctly. Allow the cake to cool completely, then remove from the tin and discard the lining paper. Store in an airtight container lined with greaseproof paper or baking parchment and keep in a cool place.
