Hi Everyone. If I made a cake, frosted it with buttercream, then covered it with Fondant...would it still be good For a birthday party on Saturday? It's the MMF and I'm doing it for a doll cake! Let me know what you know and think! Thanks TAMMY

It will be fine unless you used something in it that needs to be refrigerated.

All I did was used the cake mix formula and bc frosting and then the MMF...do I need to cover it or anything?

I usually put mine in a box or throw a piece of plastic wrap over it just to "keep the dust" off of it. Don't seal it up tight.

Welcome!

I made MMF about 5 days ago, I put it in a mixing bowl with a lid and left it on my counter. it still tastes good, and when I need to use some I just pop it in the microwave for about 10 seconds to loosen it up.

tcrema Posted 11 May 2005 , 7:34pm

Well I know that it will last the MMF I've used on this cake I made 2 weeks ago and it taste fantastic!!!! I have to keep my 10 month old away from it. I was just wondering about how it would last decorated on a cake

thecakemaker Posted 11 May 2005 , 7:36pm

If you seal it up it might absorb too much moisture from the cake and get soft and sag. Left on the counter it will be fine.

do you think that I should cover it with aluminum foil or a brown paper back to keep it from fading?

thecakemaker Posted 11 May 2005 , 8:21pm

Covering it with a paper bag would "keep the dust off" but unless it's in a window I don't think you need to worry about it fading.

Good job!
I want to try a doll cake, I have a doll pick, just not the pan. And I have a glass bowl, but I don't think it's oven proof.

thecakemaker Posted 12 May 2005 , 12:38pm

If it's pyrex or corning it's most likely oven proof. I use my pampered chef bowl to make cakes all the time.

I will have to go home and look- I'm at work. I don't think it is though, it's an old mixing bowl that was supposed to go with an old kitchenaid stand mixer from the 70's. I have a smaller one, and I used to have the bigger one to go with it, but that got broken somehow icon_cry.gif The big one was one of my favorite mixing bowls.

Yes. I have prepared them four days in advance. I was told the sugar keeps them fresh.

greencargirl Posted 12 May 2005 , 9:15pm

i love the doll! i want to make one but i don't have a little girl to make it for... maybe i'll just make one for myself someday... but as for the mmf... just leave it out on the counter... don't cover it with anything or it will get soggy looking and sticky again. all it will do is harden up but it's still easy to cut through (it doesn't get as hard as a rock)... i've left my mmf cake out for over a week and it's still good... it looks the same as the day i made it... it kinda seals off the cake and keeps it fresh inside

tcrema Posted 12 May 2005 , 10:24pm

Thank you so much for your advise. I'm glad to know it will keep. I've never made a cake more than 24 hours in advance and especially one that is for a customer. I'm glad I know and so glad for all of your advise!
