It's important to know how to store cakes properly, especially in the refrigerator — after all, nobody likes a cake with stale crumbs and tough frosting. While some cakes store better than the others, when it comes down to it, we can categorise them into the following, and store accordingly.

Frosting does wonders in helping you store your baked goods. When your cake is frosted, it acts as a barrier that helps to keep your cake moist. To store your frosted cakes better, you can cover the frosted cake with a larger bowl and place it in the refrigerator. Alternatively, start by placing your frosted cake in the refrigerator for 15 - 30 minutes to allow the frosting to set, before wrapping it with plastic wrap, then placing it back in the fridge.
This way, your frosting stays intact. Just remember to allow your cake to thaw when you take it out before serving!
With cut cakes, you should cover the sides that are exposed (i.e. the cut sides), with plastic wrap. This will reduce the moisture lost by the exposure. The rest of the cake can be treated as an uncut cake. If a cake is already sliced into, we like to slice up the rest of the cake, and store them in airtight containers.

Cheesecakes are much easier to store, as it does not suffer from the limitations that come with storing cakes (i.e. less susceptible to drying out). To store cheesecakes, simply cover it with plastic wrap, and place it in the refrigerator.
I personally like my cheesecakes cold and dense, but in the case of our Belgian Dark Chocolate Marbled Basque Burnt Cheesecake, I like heating it up for a few seconds before having it. The gooey lava cheesecake on the inside, coupled with the dense exterior makes it a real treat.
