I just finished a 2 tier buttercream covered cake and I don't need to deliver it
until Sunday morning. Can I refrigerate it, I don't like leaving it out that long..
Please help... I usually only refrigerate them overnight with much success, but this would be two nights.

Thank you, I think it should be, just everyone here says leave it out. I never leave my decorated cakes out, for fear the decorations would be too soft. THis is the first time i made one two days before. Just dont want it to be dry..

Yes, the refrigerator can dry out your cake, especially if it's not a fondant covered cake. If you're using a crusting buttercream your decorations shouldn't get soft. If you're filling isn't perishable, I'd box it up, keep it in a cool, dark place. Make sure you don't keep your thermostat up high. Keep it kind of cool in the house.
