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!
so I am not sure how I can exactly store an all buttercream cake if I assemble/decorate it a whole day in advance.
Refrigeration isn't necessary, unless you're using perishable fillings.
Store at room temperature.
Thank you for the advice, I appreciate your reply!
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.
