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??
Can anyone help?
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
Awesome, thanks guys! I've just always used buttercream or ganache, so this perishable filling thing it new to me!!
