I have heard many different tips on how to store cake for an upcoming events. In order to have enough time to decorate. I have a wedding coming up and I was wondering how I should store the cake's tiers. The cake will be frosted with buttercream and then covered with fondant.
Some of the tips I have read suggest freezing the cake after butter creaming the layers. Other suggestions, say to store the cake in a dry, cool dark place.
I am trying to avoid the cake from drying out. Any tips you guys could offer, would be very helpful.
Thank you for the link imagenthatnj. Even though I was semi-aware it was ok to freeze I had never read that thread before so it was great to get all that information. Lol now I want to freeze eveything.....would really help out an unorganised person like myself Thanks heaps - you always give great advice on here
I haven't check out that link but....Freezing layers of cake as much as 2-3 months in advance is very helpful You can also fz b'cream. Just be sure when you put the cake into the fzr, you put it on something *flat* - if necessary, on a cookie sheet until it is fzn solid before longer storage.
Thank you guys!
And there's moreI didn't want to overwhelm.
I still have to read through all thoseone of these days. I have frozen the occasional cake, but have forgotten to test for anything. I regularly just make cake, put the frosting on, and eat an hour laterlol
