Customers ask me whether they should refrigerator their cakes. I tell them I don't refrigerate my cake. Most of the time they're picking the cake up to be used that day or the next. But I did have a customer who picked his up today (Friday) and said their party wasn't until Sunday. I'm not sure whether he should put it in the fridge. I do make my buttercream using half real butter. In my family, we keep our butter out of the fridge and it doesn't usually last longenough to spoil. What would you recommend?

I bake on Thursday for Sat weddings and they sit on the counter during those 2-3 days. I would tell them, "I dont' refrigerate mine, but it won't hurt it if you do."

It would really depend on wether or not there is fruit/cream cheese filling.

It depends if there are egg whites in the BC.

No, Mike. I don't use egg whites, but I do use real butter. Our climate is so humid, when you take a cake out of the fridge it gets condensation on it as it warms.
