I am making multiple cakes for a big event at my daugher's sorority house. I won't to fill the cakes with fresh strawberries that will be soaked in amaretto/sugar. I'll bake, fill and decorate this Saturday then drive the cakes down Sunday for the event that afternoon. I don't have the room to refrigerate all these cakes. What's the popular opinion......will the filling be ok for that amount of time or should I go with another option? Thanks!

It would probably be 'safe' to eat, however, if the berries are not cooked, they probably will leak juices everywhere.

I've had a similar ? yrs ago and many people thought that once the cake was finished (iced) it was sealed and there should not be a problem w/spoilage.
Is there anywhere cool - like a basement - where you can store the cake until you leave? Then in the car, put on a coat if necessary and run the ac icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the responses to my question. I've elected to go a safer route. I'll fill with strawberry jam mixed with a little buttercream. I'm in Florida and we have been in the midst of Tropical Storm Fay for a few days......things are calming down now, but I've been lucky and had no power outages, so didn't want to take any chances. Thanks again!
