If I fill a cake with buttercream on Monday, cover and decorate with fondant on Tuesday night, will it be fresh for Thurs night?
I assume I would just leave it out?
When are you baking? Monday?
I might bake in advance and freeze it until Monday.
i see no reason why, people get so jittery about leaving cakes out these days, theres no reason why it should go bad, unless its got a pershiable filling that needs refregerating
I'm worried about it going bad, just whether the cake itself will be fresh in taste and texture.
i think it would be, usually the fondant acts as a sort of 'protective' layer
ive had cakes been out several days (family cakes, not customers) and theyve been absolutely fine
And that was supposed to read, "I am NOT worried about it going bad...", but I think you got that
Most bakery cakes (at least the ones I've worked in) have a 4 day shelf-life, from the time they are decorated to when they are sold as "day" old. I think cake is actually better on about the third day--the moisture evens out.
