My son's first birthday is fast approaching.
The birthday party is on a Saturday with his actual birthday being the Wednesday of that week.
I was thinking to bake the cakes on Tuesday and then decorate on Thursday/Friday.
Is that too long to leave the cakes at room temperature (if I bake that early should I freeze the cakes)?
We only have a fridge freezer-so freezing will be tough but I will see what I can do.
Your input is appreciated.
I think cake tastes best on day 4 or 5... it'll be fine at room temp.
I'd suggest getting the icing on as soon as possible so the flavors have a chance to blend and it won't dry out. Perhaps you can ice on Tuesday after the cakes have cooled, or ice on Wednesday.
