Is cake better the next day?

Cakes allowed to sit for a day have their internal moisture more evenly distributed than when they're just baked. Flavors, too, have more time to spread throughout the cake and combine with other flavors. This is much the same as happens with soups and stews: they're usually much better the day after they're cooked.

Is it better to put a cake in the fridge or leave it out?
