I am relatively new to cake decorating only having done 2 fondant cakes...
I'm doing a 3 tier cake for a 30th birthday party and want to fill each tier.
What is the best filling i can use the day before the party when i decorate the cakes and leave over night not in a fridge or anything??? can you use butter icing or frosting? just don't want it to look good and taste bad because of the filling....

Many thanks

Angie, you can use just about anything that doesn't need refrigeration. Pudding, custards, preserves, icing. Pipe a dam around the edge of the cake with your buttercream, then fill that. You could also put a crumbcoat of icing on the top and bottom of the layers where the filling will touch if you are worried it will soak in too much. HTH

Puddings? Custards? Really? Unless you mean the sleeved fillings those should need refrigeration.

Sleeved fillings, those were the words I was looking for leah. Like I said, anything that doesn't require refrigeration. icon_smile.gif
