I started baking last night for a cake for Saturday. Today I iced it and started decorating. I have nothing to cover it with and foil will mess up the icing. What do you do with your cakes once you've iced them or started covering them with fondant if you are working on them over a couple of days? Do you cover, leave out, or what?

I will usually slip it into a cardboard box with sides higher than the cake and drape plastic wrap over top of box then refrigerate.

Once frosted or covered in fondant I don't cover my cakes. I just leave in the refrigerator until deliver/pick up time.

I buy ALL SHAPES and SIZES of plastic containers. Most of the time I cover the cake with one of those and leave it out. First I turn the container upside down. Lid on the bottom. That way the big plastic container can go down over the top of the cake. You can just let it sit that way or lock it into place. If the container will fit in my refridgerator or freezer I put them in there sometimes. Depends how soon I need them. Most times I need them very soon so I just let them sit out, with the plastic container over the top. thumbs_up.gif

You could also store them in the COLD oven and make sure nobody turn it on to pre=heat.....yea...Had cupcakes hidden there years ago for kids birthday party and DH was helping me.....

Of course now I have a great multi shelf proof box that I store everything in. It has adjustable shelves so I have no problems with sheet cakes or stacked cakes.

Mine sit out on the counter. The icing crusts and seals the cake, keeping it fresh and moist.

The few times I've refrigerated a cake, I've had problems with it, so I really avoid putting a cake in the 'frig.
