for an 8 am delivery? The cake is frosted in buttercream-I was planning on The cookies will surround the cake.
don't know if it is too late or not but you can put the cookies on, just box it so the moisture doesn't get to the cookies.
I'm not sure what the last gal was saying about just box it so the moisture doesn't get to the cookies? My experience is, if the cookies are on the cake they start going soft after a few hours. I wouln't put them on until morning. I will be doing a 3 tiered wedding cake for my son in May. Each layer will have those cookies around it. I have made a few trials with a one layer. The cookies were soft the next day after leaving over night. I finally decided to dip the cookies in white chocolate then put them on the cake. This particular wedding is in a greenhouse besides. The white chocolate coating worked wonders. No soft cookies now. There is a picture with my photos. So back to the original question. (Sorry I elaborated a little). I still would not put the cookies on until morning. I guess that would make them harder to stick to the cake though once your frosting has crusted. Any chance you can just crumb coat tonight and frost and stick cookies tomorrow morning? Hope any of this made sense! Good luck!
