I am pretty sure of the answers, but want 100% confirmation from you pros! I am making a cake for a friend's bday, but her party is on the 31st, and I am leaving 0n the 30th for a trip. Can her husband pick it up the night of the 29th, and be OK with it? Componants/Elements:
BC w/ half butter and half HR shortening
MMF over that
Chocolate cake w/ raspberry filling
We are in a beach community of Los Angeles, and have had a very cool summer thusfar. I am sitting here typing, can't see the ocean because of the fog and mist right now!
Thanks in advance!
Fondant covered cakes with non-perishable fillings can definitely last 2-3 days, especially if it's sitting in a cardboard box. I think it can last even longer than that, I've just never had to leave it out any longer.
Because of the fruit filling it may start to get a little soggy after day 3 so I'd make sure it was served by then. With standard buttercream filling it can last up to 5 days uncut and stored in a box if not too hot or humid.
Thanks...much appreciated. And no, it has not been hot, maybe a tad humid, but a cool humid. Like I said, we have had a very cool summer thusfar.
