How long can you store a cake w and wo icing on it?
with icing depends on what type of icing and filling, and most of the time the filling is going to go bad before the cake will (expecially if it's a perishable one)
I don't like to have a cake around longer than 1 week total (from time of thawing, as i freeze my cakes after i've baked) to the time my family or my customer eats the last piece. Now i have had some family tell me they've had the cake 2 weeks later and it was still good, but i don't recommend it.
Well I was gonna bake my cakes and cupcakes tomorrow for Saturday. So I think they will still be ok. Maybe just buttercream icing them a lil then Fondant them on Friday Night or Saturday Morning. U think thats ok?
Baking on Thursday for a Saturday event is right on schedule.
I bake/fill/crumb-coat on Thursday and then decorate on Friday so that I have Saturday morning free to fix an issues that crop up.
If the cupcakes are from a separate batch of batter than the cake, I would bake those late Friday. I don't like to have cuppies sit around more than a day b/c they dry out faster than cakes do. I never put cuppies in the fridge--covered (preferably airtight) container at room temp seems to work best.
Thank you so very much, that is a great help for me
