ok so I just decorated my first cake for $. The customer is picking it up on Monday. Question: Should I just put it in the cake box as is or should it be wrapped in saran or something?
does the cake require refridgeration? Is it covered with fondant or buttercream? I don't normally put my cakes in the fridge without a box and I never cover them plastic wrap.....but others may do differently.
It is covered in buttercream. I have it in the frig now in my cake carrier. Thought I'd leave it there until monday a.m.
If it will fit in a box, definitely put it in one. It looks much more professional presented that way.
oh I am definitely putting it into a cake box. I just didn't know if it should be covered in anything else first. Like saran or anything.
Thanks for helping you guys. I have to say that coming from the cookie forum to the cake forum is a little intimidating. But everyone is just so helpful.
Ah, sorry - didn't read your original post properly. No, it shouldn't need to be wrapped in anything else. I'd do what you said, though - leave it in the carrier and then transfer it to the box before pick-up.
