      lol! Rhonda, I just put the rest of mine in the freezer. There were 2 regular size slices left, so I put them down on wax paper on the cake side and cut them in half. Then I spread the buttercream frosting across the side facing up..Now there’s 4 smaller ones. I love frozen cake in the summer!
