Log into Cloudflare.
Next to your domain name, click the drop-down box, and click on Page Rules
To set up the first rule, type in domain.com/wp-admin/
Click Add Rule.
Now, set up as the very last rule so it runs after all other rules, the rule for caching the rest of the site. In the rule pattern box, type in domain.com/ and then Custom Caching, choose Cache Everything. This sets Cloudflare to cache the HTML as well as usual static files.
