two and three tier birthday cakes due on Saturday? Is Thursday too early to bake and ice do ya think?
I bake on Wednesdays, cover in cling film for overnight, torte, fill and ganache on Thursday mornings, sometimes cover in fondant on Thurs afternoon, or on Friday, finish decorating on Friday and it will be ready for Saturday. Also gives me a bit of leeway if something doesn't go quite right with the final decorating.
Nope, I normally bake, wrap and freeze over night on Wed, fill and let settle on Thursday and decorate on Friday. I've never had a problem.
You will be fine. I have a cake that I baked tonight (Wednesday) for a Saturday afternoon party.
It is wrapped in a food safe plastic bag. Ice tomorrow (Thursday). Decorate Friday.
I always feel like its not fresh lol if I don't make it closer to the day they want the cake, but when you are doing tiers with fondant etc, I need enough time to do it all. Thanks i will bake tomorrow then.
I only get to do my thing at night or the two days a week when my son is at the sitters so I bake on Tuesday and freeze, torte, fill, and ice on Thursday and and decorate on Friday. Freezing helps keep the cakes fresh. I've gotten rave reviews on taste on every cake I've made.
