I have a 3 tier cake that I'll be traveling to the beach with on Friday morning and have just finished air brushing my layers. The cake will not be cut until Saturday night and I'm wanting to know if it will hurt to go ahead and put the cutouts on tonight or wait until tomorrow night. I just haven't work with this before and don't know if the images will mess up after being on so long or even if my fondant will begin to dry and crack. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
I've always put stuff on a couple days in advance if I have other cakes that need done. I can't just wait to put everything on at the last minute. I mean, you're just putting fondant on fondant, right? It shouldn't be a biggie at all
Thanks for answering. I was waiting on an email...so I didn't know you answered until today. All went great.
Here's what I did...I made a 3 tier Rice Krsipy Treat Cake, covered it in White Chocolate Candy Clay then covered it in white fondant. I air brushed the layers then cut out beach themed gumpaste from my Cricake cake and applied them to the fondant on Thursday. I made chocolate shells and hand molded a mermaid out of chocolate clay and applied her to the middle layer of the cake and hand painted everything. The cake traveled from Greer, SC to Garden City Beach, SC (a 5 hour trip in 90 degree weather!) and was prefect on Saturday night when we cut it at our annual Family Beach Birthday Bash!
I'm gonna try to post a picture...but FYI...I'm a hobbist...not a professional!
