So my second wedding cake is going to be late August in Wa. state. Assuming it's going to be warm, I have a couple questions.
The bride wants a whipped cream, strawberry filling and the cake will be frosted in buttercream, thinking Indydedi's might be the way to go. How long can a perishable filling like this sit out? Wedding's at 6:30 and I will be there. I can hold off a bit on displaying it if I have to. Should it be in the fridge until display or can it be in AC for a bit before going outside? Any other suggestions on buttercream recipes that hold up well? Thanks a bunch!

I think it would be best if you kept it in the fridge until 6. Then let it sit in a room with air conditioning. And then take it outside a few minutes before the cake has to be outside. Make sure that you're using a good internal support sytem so that you can move in and out of the fridge and outside.

Thanks...sounds good to me. Just gotta verify the fridge situation. Should plastic dowels be enough support or do I need one thru all the layers?

Sorry to jump in. But anyway's i have a outdoor wedding july11 and there are no AC buildings around the park where its going to be at . The Bride wants a RV cake i told her the Cream cheese icing wouldnt hold up outside.Im going to do Indydebi BC wonder if i used Creamcheese icing in the layers and not outside on the cakes if that would give enough CC flavor
And wonder how long it could be outdoors ?
Thank You

There is a crusting Cream cheese icing recipe on here somewhere that does not require refrigeration...have not personally tried it but many others have mentioned it...
