I have a question about the recipe "Richard Sax’s Chocolate Cloud Cake" from Genius Recipes. Can the cake part be made ahead of time... and maybe be refrigerated overnight (but not frozen)?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
I used to make a virtually identical cake from a 1980 cookbook- it will keep fine for at least a couple of days at room temp and is really best at that temp, adding the cream just before serving.

What Smaug said. Alternatively, yes, I do love a choc cloud cake straight from the fridge. The crispy edges get even chewier, like a good meringue, and the insides are still fudge-y and yummy. Just serve with whipped cream (hides all the blemishes).
I'm also a fan of cold chocolate; on the other hand, I'm pretty sure that this cake, without the cream, would keep much longer at room temp., probably a week without problems, I've just never had one last long enough to test the theory.
