Hey guys,

This may sound like a dumb question but I need some advice on how far in advance I can store a buttercream cake.

I usually bake my cakes and freeze them in advance and then assemble/decorate them the one day before the event but those are always fondant cakes... so I am not sure how I can exactly store an all buttercream cake if I assemble/decorate it a whole day in advance.

Can I frost it in buttercream and just stick it in the fridge or do i have to cover it with something? I honestly feel really funny asking such a question but I just dont want to mess it up. This hello kitty cake is for my friends little girl who is struggling with a severe illness and she is super excited to be receiving this cake, I just want it to be perfect! Thanks so much!

Refrigeration isn't necessary, unless you're using perishable fillings.

Store at room temperature.

Exactly what the other poster said. It needs only be covered and stored in an out of the way place at room temp to protect it.

I would still refrigerate it. It makes transporting the cake easier.
