Hello everyone! I usually cover my cakes in fondant the day before or day of... however, I am swamped this weekend!! My question is, how far in advance would you feel comforable covering a cake? Have you ever done it more than 24 hours in advance? The filling is just buttercream, not worried about that spoiling.
...........ever done it more than 24 hours in advance? The filling is just buttercream, .......
Yes many times Can do it up to 3 days ahead.
It depends on the cake recipe, fillings & frosting ...the fondant covering itself would be fine done a week in advance, (fondant will harden/dry a little, but doesn't go 'off') ...obviously you want the actual cake to be as fresh as possible though.
thanks so much, that relaxes me a lot!!
