I am working on a cake for a wedding this weekend. I am very slow at icing and getting a smooth finish so it will take all week to ice. My question is - the cake has a raspberry filling (raspberry jam and icing mixture) does it need to be refrigerated once the filling is put in?

If it does need to be refrigerated how soon do I take the cakes out of the fridge?

What will happen to the icing once the cake is iced and I take it out of the fridge?

Any other issues I should be considering?

Hi, since its jam and buttercream, you don't need to put it in the fridge! icon_smile.gif

Really? All week? I think your jam is going to get gooey and start separating from your icing. Ick.

I use SMBC or IMBC...both butter based buttercreams..I definitely refrigerate...and I'm lousy at smoothing icing,so I "chill" in between coats..kind of helps,but I haven't got it yet...

It would kind of depend on if your using buttercream, or criscocream.
