If you do not freeze cakes how do you store them? If I bake a cake tonight and just wrap it in plastic bags (the clear ones) and leave it out..... is that all I need to do?
Is there any tricks that I should be aware of? What is the time frame on how far in advance to bake.
What I have been doing in preparation for my classes which are on Wednesdays is to do the baking and crumb coating late Monday night, Icing on Tuesday and decorating in class on Wednesday. So far this has worked well for me as I do this all after the kids have gone to bed!
I'm sure you'll get different methods from some of the more seasoned CCers!
Hi, if I'm making a cake for saturday, I bake it on thursday. When its completly cooled, I wrap it with parchment paper/ grees proof paper, then with clingfilm/clear wrap. I leave it on my dinning table. On friday, I fill, cover and decorate it and put it in a box, for the customer pick it up on saturday.
If I have a cake due on a Saturday, I bake the cake on the Wednesday, carve/crumb coat on Thursday, and decorate on the Friday night. I've never had a problem with cakes going stale and find this works for me.
If I have a cake for Saturday, I bake Thursday, let it cool, then double wrap in saran and put in a plastic bag. Then I decorate Friday and put it in a box!
