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! icon_sad.gif [/list]

Maybe she wants the strawberries "on the side"... ala carte. Strawberries need to be refrigerated.

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 icon_smile.gif
