I typically do cookies, so I'm kind of cake challenged. icon_biggrin.gif

Anyway, how do you all store a cake that is taller than a typical cake carrier? I'm making a doll cake for my daughter's birthday party, but I'd like to make it the day before. My plan is to use fondant, but I may end up using buttercream instead. Anyway, the cake is taller than my cake dome, so how do I cover it?

Thanks!

Unless you have used a filling or icing that is perishable, you can probably leave it as is without covering it. I use indydebs buttercream, which has no butter...it is fine left on the counter. Unless you have a nosy cat or hungry kids with sticky fingers, you could leave it uncovered. I have put my cake on the dryer with a larger box setting over it (because of MY nosy cat, lol). Once you have it iced or covered in fondant, it should not dry out, in fact fondant keeps the moisture in. Hope this helps.

If it is fondant or well-crusted buttercream, you can cover it lightly with saran wrap or foil. If not, I would try to find a cardboard box tall enough to cover it....

Thanks! I'm sure this will dup. post, but I appreciate the input. Hadn't thought of using a box!

It won't be perishable, but I'd like to have it covered. No pets, and the kids aren't tall enough to reach, but I'd feel better that way. lol

Never mind just double posting icon_razz.gif This is getting kinda crazy!!

I don't have a cat or little munchin's running around. So I just keep my cakes out on the counter, unless it for say overnight, then I get a really big grocery bag and drape it over top of it.
