Many decide to keep their galette des rois in the open air on a dish. However, this is actually the first mistake not to make since air is the enemy of the cake. In question ? This will dry it out and thus reduce its shelf life. You should therefore always remember to cover it with a cloth, especially if you plan to consume it within the next twelve hours. It will still remain crispy.
Another mistake not to make: leaving it in its original packaging. In fact, a pancake will keep very well provided that it is kept in the right packaging. For this, it is recommended to place it in an airtight box, in stretch film or in tightly closed aluminum foil. Then you can put it in the refrigerator.
