When to glaze cake?

arielleeve | Sep 26, 2011 07:01 PM

I am making an apple cake for Rosh Hashonah, to be eaten on Wednesday night. I pre-made the cake tonight since it's the only night I can do it, but I'm trying to decide if I should put the glaze on now or wait until right before served. My inclination is to think that that should be a last-minute addition, but I also have heard that sometimes glazes help keep moisture in. Or is that just an old wives' tale?
