I have an outdoor wedding this weekend that I am doing a cupcake tower for. I'm sure the bride and groom did not expect 80 degrees on September 27th, but that is whats predicted. Has anyone had to leave a cake and/or cupcakes outside in the heat. I'm totally stumped as to what to do. I want to e-mail the bride and let her know it is a concern, however I don't really want to trouble her with something else the week of her wedding. Please help and let me know what to do. Thanks!
I would email her .... you need to let her know what the potential problems may be and you need to get it in writing that she was forewarned. If she accepts the risk, then it's her responsibility.
I would word it just like you said it here "....I'm sure no one expected 80 degree heat on 9-27, but since it will be that hot, here's my concern for your wedding ......" Ask if there is a backup plan for heat and/or rain?
Have you seen the Heat/humidity test that snowshoe1 did in a 90 degree NYC July day? I was thoroughly impressed
Thanks for great advice, as always
I did a cake a month ago, my cake sat outside for 3 hours in 90 degrees. (actually did 2 this summer)It looked great the whole time. I use hi-ratio shortening (no butter) with butter flavorings and it held up great.
Thanks Shelly4481 that makes me feel better.
