it just dawned on me that I forgot to put my cakes in the fridge today. They are all wrapped in saran wrap and sitting on the table. Will they be okay til morning or should I drive back up to my shop and put them away?

It depends on your icing,what did you use?

there is no icing. I just flipped the cakes out of their pans and wrapped them in saran wrap. just plain cake, these are the cakes that I baked for later in the week

it also depends on what kind of cake u baked.

my choc moist cakes, i've baked them countless times, & had left them UNWRAPPED on the counter, and when they've cooled, i left them in the cool oven, never wrapped them, and they never dried out & stayed moist.

so it really depends on the cake. if it's the dry type, then u will need to make the trip back home & store it in the fridge.

i think they'll be ok....if you're concerned you could brush some simple syrup on them, before you decorate.

They will be okay. I like the consistency of my cakes better when I don't refrigerate them.

I am sure they will be ok, I dont think the cake will get spoiled if left out at room temp.

They are fine! They are wrapped and won't get stale or dry. Don't worry!

Sorry to hijack but I have a question about simple syrup, littlecake. Can you use simple syrup on a cake that you are going to stack and/or carve? I have always wanted to try it but I thought it might make it too moist and it would fall apart? I usually use WASC for stacking and carving cakes, could I use a simple syrup on this kind of cake? TIA!
