Hey Everyone!

I have a cake order for this Saturday. The top tier will be red velvet w/ cream cheese filing, and the bottom tier is white cake with vanilla pudding. I just read a thread about delivery vs. cutting time, etc because of persishable fillings. I initally thought a 12:00 delivery time would be fine for a 2:00 party, cake probably at 3:30ish, but now I'm starting to second guess myself....

Is 4 hours too long for it to sit out??

I'm not an expert and I hope some more experienced cakers chime in, but if you're concerned, perhaps deliver at 1pm so that it's really only out for 3 he's or so? I doubt there would be a problem even at 4 hrs , but it's not worth the stress.

when someone orders a cake with fruit, mousse or cream cheese filled cake, I always tell them the room should be cool because of the filling.

we delivered a 5 tiered cake last week and hubby had to stay to cut it. it was suppose to be cut at 930 he didnt cut til midnight!!!!! he had a piece and said the cake was still cool and tasted fine even though it had raspberry filling in it and had been sitting out since 6pm
