I am making WASC with buttercream frosting and buttercream filling.
The party is next Saturday.
Can I frost the cake on Thursday and leave it on the kitchen counter until Saturday or it is too early?

Thanks.

Me too and I've never had anyone say the cake was dry or stale - the opposite, in fact. Last one, I spent a week or more making the gumpaste figures, put blood sweat and tears into the design and got the most compliments on how moist the cake was - and I'd finished it on a Thursday for a Sunday party, actually. icon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gificon_rolleyes.gif

does it settle any, or gets mis-shapen?

Mine never has, but I typically bake on Wednesday evening and let it sit in the fridge (wrapped well) until Thursday evening, then decorate Friday, so I imagine it gets a chance to settle before I decorate it.

What kind of box do you use for 12x18 sheet cake?
Where do you guys buy a box for 12 x 18 sheet cake?
I know where to get cake boxes but not this size?
