I am making a wonky 3 tiered cake this week and have no room to store it in the fridge. The bottom layer is mud cake and the other 2 are buttercake sponges with white ganache filling. I will be covering them all in fondant so do I need to keep it in the fridge?
Most decorating books I read say that fondant shouldn't be put in the fridge anyway. So what cakes can be left out? My ganache has cream in it and the yellow sponge has eggs and butter. What is everyone else doing?
Once a cake is baked you don't need to worry much about the fact that it contains eggs & butter as it is cooked.
I don't know anything about mud cakes
In general from all I have read I think you will be fine leaving it UNfrig'd for 3-5 days.
Thanks for the advice. Here is the link to my finished cake. http://www.cakecentral.com/modules/coppermine/albums/userpics/169323/normal_Klare.jpg
Wow! That is a beautiful cake!
