working on buttercream covered wedding cake with a gazillion gold and silver dragees for decorating. looking good but when i pulled a tier out of the fridge today to work on, dragees started to sweat as they came to room temp.
question...after they come to room temp will the sweat just evaporate and leave the dragee in good condition or am i about to have a serious problem on my hands????
any experience and help would be greatly appreciated!!!
I say "Don't touch and let dry." Everything should be fine
Not sure, but I would make sure not to touch them at all until they are completely dry. I'm pretty sure that if you touch them while they are wet, the silver & gold color will come right off. Good luck & I hope someone else has a better answer for you......
Why was the cake in the refrigerator in the first place? Perishable filling?
Leahs that was my first thought too....if no perishable filling room temp is fine.
filling is fruit so i wanted to keep in fridge. i will need to stack this cake on site and i like to stack when chilled. also, the cake will have time to come to room temp before eating tomorrow night after delivery.
i really hope the dragees will be okay!!!
I don't have any brilliant help on this but I'm curious as to the answer - so here's a bump for you - hope someone comes through with an answer!!
As DancingCakes2008 & AZCakeGirl both wrote - don't touch them until they are completly dry - otherwise the silver and gold will come of and leave them a dull greyish colour - sorry this happened to you after all your hard work - if you have to touch one - make it one right down the bottom so as not to leave drag marks in your BC
Wishing you luck so as you don't have to pick off and replace every single one
