cakes cool, I cover them with cling wrap...because I wasn't going to start my docorating till later tonight. Not wanting them to sat out uncover till then.

I just walked by them in my kitchen and notice water beads on the plastice wrap. I have always baked my cakes, cool and then started decorating, my cakes were cool when I wrap them.

Now I am worry if the cakes are no good now and if any bacteria may have started. Are they still good or should I trash them and not take any chances of someone getting sick? Thanks!

God Bless,

Sounds like they must not have been totally cool.

I'd probably at least loosen the wrapping, maybe dry it off before you put it back on there loosely. If the cake feels damp, but not wet, you could probably use a clean towel or a paper towel to pick up any moisture.

Hope it is okay and you don't have to rebake.

I am sure the cakes are fine, they were probably a little warm when you covered them with plastic wrap. I always wrap my cakes in Wax paper before covering them with the plastic wrap. I always bake one day & frost the next.
