I am doing a wedding cake that is sqare stacked tiers, 6, 8, 10 inch. Cake is iced all white, very simple, but how do I keep the fresh strawberries that I will be putting on it looking nice? Someone told me to use simple syrup on the berries before placing them on the cake but I don't know if I can do that the night before setup or not?

As a caterer, I set strawberries out on the buffet, on the appetizer table, all the time. They sit there for 'most' of the reception and they hold up fine.

If you can put the berries on the cake when you set it up, right before the reception, I don't think they will start to grow mold in the next 20 minutes or anything! icon_wink.gif

I would be sure they are washed and dried before setting them on.

This produce is pretty decent if you have to slice the fruit as well. You can also use it if your baking and the fruit is inside, to keep it looking fresh.
