I have a cake that is going to be delivered Saturday morning at 8:00am. Is it too early to ice it, put the fondant accents on it, and keep it in the fridge until then?? Normally, I do all of that the day before, but I am wanting to get it done today....what do you guys think??

No it isn't too early. If nothing is perishable I wouldn't refrigerate it as it tends to dry it out.

When I was working the 60 hr a week job plus doing cakes I would have to break up the time I spent decorating. On Thursday nights I would ice the cake, on Friday nights I would decorate and on Saturday mornings I would deliver. I used a crisco based buttercream frosting never refrigerated and never had any problems. I think you will be okay. :0)

Is there something in that that would make you need to put it in the fridge? Other wise finish it up and leave it out on the counter until needed.

I put 2 tablespoons of milk in the frosting.....would that be considered perishable?? Sorry it seems like I am such an idiot....I'm really not icon_smile.gif

I don't get all this "refrigeration dries out your cake" because I refrigerate cakes constantly and my cake is NEVER dry. Always super moist. I can't stand dry cake.

Anyways...

Yep I filled and iced a couple cakes today...assembling one tomorrow for Saturday, and assembling one Saturday for Sunday. But they are already filled and iced, sitting in my fridge.

No, it doesn't need to be refrigerated.
