Hey there....I always let my cake settle overnight with the filling and covered in saran wrap. However, I have not done this with mouse and fresh fruit filling. Can I do this with fresh fruit...or does the cake have to be refigerated the whole time?? Any suggestions please icon_sad.gif

Yes, it has to be refridgerated, you need to be careful when handling perishable fillings, plus if it's fresh fruit it'll get soggy

i would TOTALLY let it settle. i had a cake slide completely because i didnt let it settle. but you do have to have it in the fridge thats the bad part, because of the fruit. but it wont get sorry... i think itll taste better. cake seems to taste better after a couple of days. well at least i think so. lol. hth

I just read on another forum on this site, if it is fresh, it is ok, if it is cooked, it is not. (This person had just learned this in a food safety class)

Sorry, I mean fresh is ok to leave out, cooked fruit has to be refrigerated.

I press down on my cakes with a cookie sheet, then allow them to settle for at least 30 minutes before refrigeration.
