I have a friend who is asking me to do a cake for her daughter's birthday. The birthday party falls on a Sunday and I told her that I was busy that weekend, so she asked me if I can do it by Friday. I told her that I can but my question is, can a buttercream cake be in the refrigerator for 2 whole days and still taste fresh? I would hate to say yes to her and then the day of the party, the cake taste old. Thanks in advance, Irene

You could make it without using fillings that require refrigeration. The cake is more likely to go stale/dry spending two days in the fridge, from what I've read and from my own experience.

I agree with MJoycake, a refrigerated cake tends to go stale quicker. Use a non-perishable filling and your cake's freshness will be fine using that timeframe. icon_smile.gif

There's no need to refrigerate a buttercream iced cake unless the filling is perishable. Cake stays good for about a week.

Thank you for your response. I have been making cakes for only a few months and I only do it as a hobby, but I have always decorated them the day prior. icon_smile.gif
