I want to make a 4 tiered cake - once it's baked & cooled - do I need to chill to stop air bubbles forming? If so, for how long & do I do the frosting after chilling? Thanks in advance.

Hi, I bake the cakes two days in advance. Once the cakes are baked and cooled, I torte and fill and cover them in clingfilm and let them settle overnight. The next day, crumbcoat and cover the cakes in sugarpaste or ice with buttercream. And then stack and decorate.

I never put my cakes in the fridge. If you are using a filling that needs to be in the fridge, than you have to put the cakes in the fridge.

Meg, once a cake is baked, air bubble are not going to form inside the cake, doesn't matter how the cake is stored.
