AI will be making my son's birthday cake this upcoming week. I don't have a seperate fridge to put it in, and im afraid that any odors will make my buttercream taste weird. If I put boxes of baking soda and a few lemons will that help wirh any odors that may make my cake taste weird?

it will surely help

 

i am weird about that!!!

 

i go through my frige and toss stuff (god forgive me :) pickles, onions, garlic omg tuna fish etc

 

some of it can survive a night out of the chill box--some could go in the garage or something in the winter

 

it's simply a small collateral expense to birthing a cake-- the cake comes first

 

outta the way horseradish and polish sausage--take a hike sauerkraut

 

it is a wonderful thing to have a dedicated frige for sweets

Wrap your raw onions and garlic into a ziplock bag.  Any lefotver food should already be sealed with at least plastic wrap. No need to toss good food for a family cake.

 

Maybe this is a good time to wipe down the inside surfaces of your fridge with some baking soda and water solution.  Then just put in one open box to keep it fresh.

I will definitely be doing this, this week. Thanks for the advice :D

And should you have any raw meat in the fridge, keep those sealed packages on a lower rack than the cake.

 

I put all my meat straight from the grocery store into the freezer, so it doesn't sit in the fridge at all.  But if you have no other options, then just use commonsense to make sure that nothing can drip onto your cake. Once the icing hardens up, you can wrap the cake or put it into an airtight container, to keep little fingers out of it.
