If I decorate a buttercream cake on Tuesday, will it still be good for a Saturday party? thumbs_up.gifthumbsdown.gif

You could bake the cake in advance and then put it in the freezer. Then you could pull it out and decorate it on Thursday or something.

I don't think that I would decorate it that far in advance because I'd be afraid that the cake would be too dry. But that's just me.

probably yes. depends on your recipe. and i imagine things like if humidity and stuff, weather always affects stuff, lol.
if its for a paying customer, id be trying to do it nearer the time, if its family, i wouldnt worry.

Is there someone else in your area that could make the cake for you? You could see about finding someone on here to do it. Sending good thoughts your way!

I made the cake today. I will take it with me to work Wednesday and frost it there. It is a really simple cake with just some pokemon fondant figures and fondant letters to be put on the cake. I can make this work. Thank you so much for your good thoughts. I know the surgery is minor but it is always scary.
