Hi, im going to be making a cake simply covered in buttercream. Its not something Ive really done before. However I was hoping to get it done the day before its due. Can it be fully decorated in the buttercream and kept in the fridge over night and the next day. If so how do I cover it to keep it protected. I just need some tips on how to keep it looking good. I would be doing fondant but I had dislocated my finger two weeks ago and am still not up to working with fondant yet.

Sure it will be fine, but you only have to refrigerate it if it has a perishable filling or icing. Ideally it's best left out of the fridge.

You can box it or place it in a cake saver if you have one.

Hope your finger gets better! ouch

Thank you very much for the quick reply. I will box it then, dont have a cake saver. My finger has healed a bit but I still cannot bend it fully or apply pressure to it. Its beed depressing since my original cake design was way more detailed. Its for my moms birthday so theres no worry about impressing anyone so that helps. lol icon_smile.gif
