Hey to all CCer's im to do a cake for a out door wedding in July in the late evening say around 6pm she wants BC icing this is my question how would you keep this cake would you put it into the refrig until time to take to the venue and set up then would you set them in coolers until you get there then wait until the very last min to set up which would be scary im in Tennessee and it gets kinda hot probably around 70is to low 80s any info on this would help me so much since this is my first outdoor cake. Im not adding butter to the fact it will def get soft also i read here that some one made bc and it was oily on top what caused it cause mine has been doing that lately Thanks

I've got a situation where I'm dealing with heat too.

Looks like Indidebi's recipe is the way to go

Use Indydebi's recipe. I have used it several time for outside events (Texas summertime) and it has worked out great. I would keep the cake as cool as possible for as long as possible, but it should do the trick for you. I "always" do BUTTERcream, but I haven't had a single complaint about Debi's recipe with no butter.

BTW ... I think your '70s to low 80s' sounds like heaven. We hit 104 yesterday afternoon at 3:00 .... icon_cry.gif

cakebaker1957 your post if very, very hard to read when you don't use periods etc ;(

.......gets kinda hot probably around 70is to low 80s.........

I have to smile at this statement. Hon, that's not hoticon_smile.gif I have delivered and set up b'cream cakes w/temps over 100 degrees and the icing did not melt. If anything it dries out. I use about 1/3 butter, 2/3s Crisco when it is that hot - otherwise I use 1/2 and 1/2.
Yes, if you have the room in the frig, keep the cake cool until you deliver it. Try to deliver no more than 1 hour before event time.
