I have a cake due Saturday morning. Was wondering if the cake would become stale/taste not fresh if i bake it tonight? (wednesday night) its a chocolate cake with ganache filling and icing and covered with fondant.


One more question. any idea as to how much ganache i would need to fill and cover an 8 inch round cake thats appx 4 inches high?

If you cover the cake, I think it should be fine. I've baked 4 days in advance and haven't had any problems.

AYou could also bake and then freeze it. I freeze most of my cakes at least over night and they always turn out very moist. Good luck!

AI personally have kept cakes in the freezer for up to a week just fine. Make sure they are wrapped tight in saran wrap and then aluminum foil. Maybe someone else has more experience freezing them longer? Hopefully others will chime in.

AOh I'm so sorry. I misread that. :) If it is covered in fondant maybe two days ?? Make sure it is in a box or covered to keep dust off! I personally assemble all of mine the day before.
