How long in advance can you do a fondant cake that has buttercream icing under the fondant before the event and the cake still be good?
I just did a huge castle cake for my daughter. This was on Friday and the cake is still moist and yummy today!
I posted this question not too long ago for a birthday cake. The response I got was to wait until the day or night before the cake is due. But the fondant was still relatively soft 3 days later.
I made my husbands birthday cake one saturday, covered it in fondant, put it in a box, wrapped the box in saran wrap. Toted the cake 500 miles away to my inlaws house, let it sit on the counter there for a a few days, and served it the following saturday. So it sat room temp, covered in fondant, for a week. Served it to his family and they said it was the best cake they had ever had in their lives.
If you're selling it to someone, I don't know that you should do that...
As long as its stored well it should be good for several days at least, maybe even up to a week.
I agree.. if you are selling it to someone.. I usually do mine a day ahead and its fine.
Thanks everyone for all your responses....I just love Cake Central...it's just soooo full of information. I was laid off from my job a month ago and started baking cakes for family and friends to make ends meet and right now I think it's going to be my new full time job.
