I need some urgent help - I have an order for a vanilla sponge cake with no filling OR icing on top. That's fine but she wants fresh strawberries on the side of the cake plus a 'happy birthday' message for a friend. How do I attach fresh strawberries on the sides? & how will the cake remain fresh & moist without any frosting/icing? Any assistance on this will be greatly appreciated! Should I be keeping the cake outside or in the fridge until she comes to collect it? Don't know what to do! [/list]
Maybe she wants the strawberries "on the side"... ala carte. Strawberries need to be refrigerated.
hmmm..maybe brush the cake with some simple syrup and wrap it with saran wrap till time for delivery just to try to keep it moist..as for the strawberrys i would just do as the last comment said put them on the side..hope it all works out
Thanks guys.. That's exactly what I did! CWR41- I literally put fresh strawberries on the sides of the cake after brushing it with syrup. It's now saran wrapped & refrigerated
