Cake recovery - help!

I guess I was a bit eager to get to bed last night and covered my cake with aluminum foil before it had fully cooled. This morning it looks a bit wet/soggy; how can I get it back to a more freshly-baked texture? Can I just leave it uncovered during the day and let some of the moisture evaporate??

    I would just put it back in a medium oven for a few minutes.

    Knowing the climate where you live might help! In other words, if you live in NOLA it might be ok to let it sit uncovered all day, but if you live in the mountains of Colorado, it would be a brick by the time you got home from work! :)
