Today is Tuesday night and I have a cake due Fri morning (although their party is not until Sat) I am wondering if I can leave it wrapped in saran wrap on my counter until I do a crumb coat tomorrow night? After that should I put it in the fridge until Thursday night when I am ready to decorate it? I know this is a lot but I am really stressing because it's my first cake for someone else other than me
Thanks for your help!!!
If you are not going to crumb coat it until tomorrow night, I think it would be best to freeze it and let it thaw out during the day tomorrow. If you do freeze it, double wrap with saran wrap then wrap in foil
I personally never freeze cakes. Sometimes I will bake a cake late in the pm, double wrap with saran wrap then double wrap with foil and leave it on the table to crumb coat, frost, and decorate starting early the next day. I've never had a problem with dryness.
Why did you bake it already?
