I am making a strawberry cake with strawberry moose/white chocolate filling. I have no experience using moose as a filling. How far ahead can I make the moose, and how far ahead can I fill my cake. Thanks for you help

What recipe are you using? I don't think a mousse is stable enough to last more than a few days at most. And I think most need to be kept refridgerated once you fill the cake.

icon_smile.gif Mousse is ok to sit in the fridge for two days even as a cake filling or by itself.. The problem would be, how long would that cake sit on the table b4 it is served after you deliver it? whether it is for a wedding or birthday, mouse should not sit on the table for hours.

LOL, sorry, that just made me smile. We have a moose that's been camping out in our backyard, and I had this mental image of me inviting the moose in for cake. And this one only has one little antler, so he should fit pretty well.

This is the recipe I am using. It is from Martha Stewart

1 pound strawberries, hulled and halved, plus 2 cups sliced strawberries
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
8 ounces white chocolate, finely chopped
1 1/4 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
2 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar

so you think I can make it 2 days ahead of time. How long can it sit out for. I am taking it in the car for 25 mins, then it will be1hr to 1 1/2 hr before it will be served.

Will there be a place to keep it cold at the venue for a while? It sounds like it would be out two hours before it even gets there, I wouldn't do it. The recipe sounds very delish though.

the cake is for my moms birthday which is at a restaurant. I could keep it in a cooler in the car. what do you think? what happens to it when it has been out too long?

Well, the cream could go bad. Not as tragic, but if the mousse started to melt it could leak out or make your cake fall. So it's a one layer cake? If it will fit in a cooler then I would say go for it. Chill it very well before you leave, and put in the fridge as soon as you get there. I was picturing maybe a tiered cake that would not be kept cool, sitting out in the sun.
