I have a groom's cake for Jan 7th. How far in advance can I bake and store the cake in the refrigerator? Can I store it without crum coating?

I usually start baking one week in advance and wrap the cake in saran wrap (several layers) and freeze it. Then I put it in the fridge the day before I want to start crumb coating and decorating. I have done this as far as 2 weeks ahead and the cake is still deliciously moist.

You can bake it now if you want. I wrap the cooled cake(s) in plastic wrap twice, then foil twice and then put in either a ziploc bag or wrap in freezer paper and stick it in the freezer. Freezing is by far your best bet when baking in advance. Good Luck!!

I do this for all my personal cakes. Fill and frost two or three days out, (depending on how cooperative my kids are acting) and decorate the day before. thumbs_up.gif
