Ok, so I'm making my first cake, baseball cake covered in buttercream. I plan on doing a crumb coat and frosting it today (I need it for tomorrow, Friday). But I wanted to know what to do with it after it's all done...
Do I leave it in the cake carrier I plan on using tomorrow, or do I need to refrigerate it?
I don't want it to melt, but I don't want it to get too hard either. Need immediate advice. Thanks!
The crumb coat will keep the moisture inside. As for melting, as long as you keep it in air conditioning you should be fine.
If you are going to be transporting in the heat, make sure you refrigerate a couple of hours beforehand and cool off the car inside before transporting.
