I was wondering if I can make a cake on a Monday, cover in fondant on a Tuesday and it will still be fresh by the Saturday. It's a family one rather than a customer I just don't think I'll have time later in the week.
I was thinking that once the fondant is on it then air can't get to it to dry it out. Has anyone tried this? It's a vanilla sponge cake.
Personally I wouldn't serving a cake that is 6 days old, nor would I want to eat one. For me the longest I will go until it is cut is 4 days.
Thanks for the reply. I managed to rearrange some stuff so don't need to bake it so early
There are some that do bake early and freeze the cake to pull out later in the week to decorate it. I don't currently have freezer space to do that myself, but it's always an option.
