Keep Cakes Moist Overnight With A Slice Of Bread

It might sound (and look) a bit ridiculous, but the Baked Bree blog swears that this trick works for preventing cakes and other baked goods from getting stale before their time: Put a slice of bread on them.

I recently had cupcakes go very stale the next morning when left out overnight on the bench, so I might try this, even though the blog notes this technique will waste the slice of bread. Still — and most importantly — it preserves the dessert.
