I need to make my niece first year cake. Her birthday is on Father's day. I'm planning to bake the cake on Saturday and decorate it on Sunday. Do I need to store the cake in the fridge or can I leave it outside? I'll make an orange cake. Here is the recipe:
1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
1 (3 ounce) package instant lemon pudding mix
3/4 cup orange juice
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon lemon extract
1/3 cup orange juice
2/3 cup white sugar
1/4 cup butter
Grease a 10 inch Bundt pan. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
In a large bowl, stir together cake mix and pudding mix. Make a well in the center and pour in 3/4 cup orange juice, oil, eggs and lemon extract. Beat on low speed until blended. Scrape bowl, and beat 4 minutes on medium speed. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.
In a saucepan over medium heat, cook 1/3 cup orange juice, sugar and butter for two minutes. Drizzle over cake.
I bought some creme bouquet. Should I use it for the frosting? I'll make a buttercream frosting. If you have a VERY good buttercream recipe please let me know. I prefer a frosting with a light sweet flavor.
I don't think you should have to refrig your cake.
There are lots of icing recipes here under the recipe section. I have tried several and they all work well, that I have tried, depending on what I needed them for.
I dont refrigerate mine. I bake the night before let them cool then cover them.
2 cups crisco
2lbs powdered sugar
1/2 cup water
1tsp clear vanilla
1/2 tsp clear butter flavoring.
Its yummy and EASY!
You do realize that the cake you have the recipe for (I have baked this numerous times in my life and love it!) the last 3 ingredients are for a glaze...the butter, OJ and sugar. It doesn't need frosting as the cake is glazed. Maybe I am just reading you wrong though Best of luck!
You are right. The last ingredients are for the icing. I usually do it like that but because we want this recipe for the birthday we will omit this icing and use a buttercream to decorate it with a Little mermaid's theme.
VERY CUTE! I bet she'll just LOVE IT! Try an Italian Meringue Butter Cream! Light and buttery!
