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
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.
