Usually when doing a stacked cake, due to time constraints I bake on Thursday, fill the cake and let it set for max 2-3 hours and decorate on Friday for a delivery and stacking on Saturday. The last cake I decorated when I stacked it on Sat the icing on the bottom tier cracked. It was like it crusted too much. My question is this, I have a cake for late Saturday afternoon. Would it be okay to bake on Thurs, fill the cake on Friday, let it set overnite and decorate it Saturday morning. Stacking at the site. It is a small 6in and 9in cake. Is this too soon after decorating that morning to put my stress free cake supports in and stack later that afternoon at the site???
Thanks for any help
