I'm making my first Wedding cake for Saturday...
It's 2 tiers...
This is what I've already done:
Baked Cake and put in Freezer
This is what I had planned:
Thursday (today)- Take out of freezer and put in fridge tonite.
Friday- fill, and crumbcoat.
Now my question is: If I fill and crumbcoat tomorrow (friday), can I also cover with MMF fondant and decorate friday as well? Will the cake stay good and moist? It's Red Velvet.. and regular buttercream. Should I leave the cake fully covered in MMF on the counter? Or cover it?
Wedding is at 6pm Sat, but I have to be there by like 3pm and it's a 3hr drive.
I would thaw it out today on your counter, make suer it is complete thawed out.
Fill and coat today to let the cake settle.
Cover in fondant on friday (tomorrow) and leave in on the counter.
Deliver on saturday!
You will have no problem leaving it out, you'll be done by friday, and the cake will be nice and moist still Good luck!
I don't work with fondant much, but here's a bump so maybe someone else will answer.
I would fill first thing in the am on friday so cake has time to settle. You will avoid bulges this way. You can leave it out after you cover with MMF, but I would cover it with something.
yes, you can finish your cake friday.. that is what i always do.. i leave it on the counter.. before i go to bed.. i make sure eveything is what it is suppose to be.. then i just lay couple plain paper towels over it.. i do not have any animals.. i do not have any little children.. now in my life.. that was the good life.. hth
I believe that the fondant will seal the cake and keep it moist.
