My husband questioned me about two cakes I am making for Saturday. He is asking if they are still good. I baked the grooms cake Sunday night late and the wedding cake Monday. I stored them tightly wrapped in a cool place in my kitchen. When I started on the grooms cake last night he said that it wouldn't be any good by Saturday, now I am question myself, Is he maybe right??? icon_confused.gif I don't want to make anyone sick. Do I need to rebake these cakes? Thanks for your responses.

I would rebake. If you want to bake more than a day or two ahead you need to freeze them.

I would rebake also. I bake 2 days before something is due. So Thursday for a Saturday order.

why don't you just freeze it. It really depends on what kind of cake you are using if you leave it out for a week. I have some that would work o.k. if I left it in the fridge.
For someone else though I would not leave it out for a week and then give it to them.

Thanks for the input. The grooms cake is iced with butter cream and covered in fondant, do you think i still need to rebake it?

yes. A week is too long to leave it out.

Ok..so i know i've eaten cake that is around three to four days old and it still tasted pretty darn good..cake mix cake. BUT>> if it was for a paying customer i would definitely not give them a cake that was that old because how many days are they gonna leave out the leftovers? I wouldn't want to make anyone sick.
What i do is bake my cakes early in the week, freeze 'em and then take them out the day before i'm ready to ice. It maintains moistness, freshness and i don't have to worry about making people sick. JMO.

I'd rebake.

I agree, rebake, while you won't make anyone sick, the cake will taste stale. I also bake just 2 days ahead, and if I have a lot of cakes to do, I freeze them(though I try to avoid freezing as I also think it effects taste)

For a paying customer definitely, you need to re-bake.

If you want to bake that far in advance you really need to freeze the layers.
