I've agreed to provide a cake for a women's meeting, and I've learned that I'll need to be out of town the day of the meeting. I wonder if I could do it 48 hrs in advance? Would it still be fresh? I'll be a simple white cake with BC. The only problem I see is that it's big enough that I have no way of airtight storage. The best I can do is to wrap the box in cling wrap. Do y'all think it'll be OK? Will it still taste fresh after 48 hrs??? TIA!!!

I personally see no problem with that. I probably wouldn't even wrap the box airtight. The icing will keep the cake fresh. I think it will taste great. icon_smile.gif

Alot of times my cakes are done 2 or 3 days in adavance due to my work schedule. The ones I have taken into work were fine, moist. No problems.

Thanks so much, gals! That sets my mind at ease. I've just never had to do a cake more than a day in advance.
