OK, I normaly have so much time, but this week there is not enough time for much. I have 4 cake orders, and I baked today and filled my wedding cake tiers. How soon can crumb coat and frost them and also dec? Set up is for noon on Saturday, and I do not want to be rushed when doing it. Anyone out there that can give me some pointers please?
Go ahead and do them If it's cool or you have a cool room to keep them in they will be just fine.
If I were you, I would do it Thursday... or depending on when your other cakes are due, finish them first and work on the wedding cake friday.
You definitely want to crumb coat them today if you are not going to be freezing them.
I have done several cakes that were done 2 days before the event. For example, decorated on Friday, customer picked up Sat. for and event on Sun.
If all of your fillings/cake/frostings are room temp. stable, there should be no problem. BC seals a cake very well, fondant even better.
They are all due on Saturday in the am, one is a boob cake, 2nd a gatiar cake and then a Germ. Choc. Cake and wedding cake.....
So then maybe crumb coat tommarow and then finish on Friday?
