I was asked to donate a cake for a raffle for a youth group this coming Saturday. I wanted to make a ghost cake, so I made a trial cake this past weekend. Saturday, I baked 2 6 inch and half a ball mold (french vanilla cake mix). I stacked them and covered very liberally in buttercream and it sat in the fridge until Sunday night. Then, I covered with Fondant and finished it. The cake is soo cute, I really don't want to have to make another one for the raffle! Should I go ahead and just make a new one so it will be fresh or would the one I made be ok? It's been locked up tight in a cake container since Sunday night.
A week old cake? Yeah, no. Make a new one. Ish.
Yes, I would not let anyone eat a week old cake. Serve that one now and make a fresh one.
You might could freeze it, but I couldn't promise how it would turn out.
it's freeze it or a new one for me....
When you think of it whoever wins the raffle might not eat the cake right away. Then they would be eating stale cake. You don't want them to look down upon your cakes.
Another thing to consider is are they going to eat it that day or have left overs for over a day or two. I wouldn't serve or eat a week old cake.
Thank you guys so much! I was pretty sure I would need to make another cake...but I just wanted a second opinion!!
