Hi once again!!!!! My friends here at CC have been nothing but help and more help lately! You guys are the best! Therefore, I have another question.

I just received my copy of "cake doctor" that so many of you recc. I get! And I went right to work on my Mom's 80th birthday cake for Sunday's party. I am making the Chocolate/Almond cake...The recipe says to store in the frig. My guess is because it has buttermilk in it. I really hate keeping my iced and decorated cakes in the you really think I have to????????????????? Would it be fine once decorated to leave on the counter over night until the party??? Thanks!!!

Using milk or buttermilk, eggs, sour cream, etc. in the cake batter doesn't necessitate the refrigeration of the baked cake.

However, if you frost (the deeply chocolate cake with almond) using the chocolate cream cheese frosting (also from the CMD) you will need to refrigerate the cake. (But only because the frosting is perishable.)

If you use a shelf-stable frosting (American b/c) your cake won't require refrigeration. icon_smile.gif
