I have a cake being picked up tonight for a wedding on Saturday. Will the crushed graham crackers be ok until then or will they go soggy and gross? Need help ASAP.

They should be okay if the cake is being eaten tonight or tomorrow........except, how is the humidity in your part of the woods?

Well, I don't think you really have a choice, right? They are more for look than taste anyway so I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Granted, I live in AZ where it is 100 degrees and very dry - but if you look at the retirement cake in my gallery - you'll see where I used crunched up rick krispies for the sand. They didn't affect the taste, but gave it a nice crunch. Only the immediate layer of RK's were a little less-than-crunchy...but the rest were great. Just a suggestion.

Agree that it's for looks and not really for eating anyway. When I did my seashell wedding cake, when I cut the cake at the reception, I scooped all of the 'sand' off of the cake and dropped it in the trash (well, scooped up as much as I could get!)

Can you just put the crumbs in a ziplock with instruction on how they should place them on Saturday?

I just used graham cracker crumbs on cupcakes for a beach themed bridal shower. Decorated them on Saturday, the shower was on Sunday, there were a few left over and they lasted a couple days and it didn't get soggy or gross. So, I think it would be fine.

I smushed them up in a freezer bag first, then I cut a hole at the corner so that I could "write" them where I wanted them. I did have to slightly push them down onto the cake...but once they were on...they were ON.

I had a piece with the rk's on it, and I thought it was delicious. But the sand on my cake wasn't meant to be decoration only.

And besides...haven't you met Rick? He makes the most delicious krispies. icon_wink.gif
