Making a wedding cake for the first time and wanted to know if cakes can be baked 2 or 3 days before event. It will be a yellow cake w/a rum syrup poured on it. How do I store before decorating? Do I wrap in saran wrap?

HELP!!!
Thanks

You can bake them way ahead of time and freeze them. I swear it makes them more moist... Yes, wrap them in saran wrap, then foil and put them in the freezer. Then take them out the night before you are going to decorate them. Do not put syrup on them until defrosted.

If you do not want to freeze them, then it depends on your recipe but most cakes are good for a couple of days before serving at least. The WASC is best after about 3 days IMO...

You just use yellow cake mixes instead of white.

Good luck! icon_smile.gif
