Hi ladies. I was wondering if anyone knows how far in advance I can make a cake with buttercream frosting so that it will still be tasty for the party. Also, to keep it, where should I store it? I have three cakes I have to make for bday parties and I can't do them all at once. Thanks in advance for the help!!!!
For myself, I have a 3 day rule / time line. Day 1: take out of freezer or bake that day. Day 2: Torte, fill, crumbcoat; let cakes settle overnight. Once they are crumbcoated they can sit out and still stay fresh. The crumbcoat 'seals' them. You don't need to refrigerate your cakes unless there is a perishable filling. Day 3: Ice and decorate. If you're really pressed for time they would probably be fine for one more day but I wouldn't serve a cake any older than that. Good luck!!
OH, anf FYI - there are a lot of men on this site that hate being called 'ladies'. WELCOME TO CC!!!
I use the same 3 day timeline...
wow.. that's very helpful.. thanks for sharing!
Thank you all for the information. I appreciate it!
