In my house cake never lasts. I never have to worry about the cake going bad before it is eaten. However, if you are worried that the cake isn’t going to be eaten in time, you can freeze the Chocolate Earthquake Cake. To freeze this cake, you want to wrap the cake tightly in plastic wrap. You can either wrapped the cake as a whole, or you can cut the cake into individual slices and wrap each piece in plastic. The benefit of cutting the cake before freezing is that you can take a single serving instead of the whole cake. To thaw the cake, remove it from the freezer and thaw it in the refrigerator.
