I am delivering a cake TODAY and I'm concerned that I might be delivering too early (I've got a busy schedule today that doesn't allow ms to deliver later) my cake is a 4 tiered caked covered in fondant. Under fondant is ganache and cream cheese bc. If I deliver at 12:30 and it won't be served till 7 will that be ok?
Appreciate quick responses. Thanks!
i think it depends on your cream cheese bc recipe. I use the crusting cream cheese recipe which has more PS than dairy ingredients so it can sit out longer b/c the sugar is acting as a preservative. But there are some recipes that have a lot more dairy than PS and shouldn't be out for more than 2-3 hours.
sound a bit too long for me, just thinking on cream cheese Forecast for your city is 89 F and may be higher than recommended for icing and even fondant.
You have to consider that some reception venues don't have AC running under 76 until minutes before the event, check with your customer if the cake will stay in a controlled environment at all times and try to move delivery time as close to serving time possible.
