Pampered Chef: Questions on microwave cakes

  1. I have not made one yet but I want to take one into work for a taste test.
    The problem is that I will have to make this the night before as I am not allowed to do stuff like this when I am working.
    My question is : How does the cake taste after it sets all night and do any of the cakes need to be refrigerated. I am planning on trying the Caramel Pumpkin cake. Any ideas?? :confused:

    I think these cakes taste best hot out of the microwave. I think when they set they seem to get tough and need reheated. Just my opinion. I'd do a different dessert to take in if it was me. The pineapple upside down cake is good. :)

    The only cake I made that didn't have this problem was a Strawberry Cake. I think it was a cream-cheese icing I used...but that cake remained so moist and so good for several days! We all just kept eating on it and loving it ! (and my DH is not a cake person, but he was the worst one of all of us).

    Can you make the cake before you go to work? Since it only takes under 15 minutes- you could make it while getting ready for work and then take the stone in and flip it when you get there?

  5. Thanks so much for the replies. I had feared that the cake may be tough if it sets overnight.
    I may have to get up in time to make it before work or make something else!
    But, I have to wonder what good it is to make it in the micro when the left-overs may get tough? ...just me wondering out loud...thanks again for the feedback!:)

    One, don't usually have leftovers! LOL! And two, you can reheat and it is fine. :)

    How big is your microwave at work? Could you prepare it at home and then just pop it in the microwave when you get there?

    I find the apple crisp in the DCB does ok overnight...
