Thanks Squirrelly! And be careful out there!! This heat is terrible!
Boy, did I speak too soon??
Today is kind of 'cold' here!! Only 25 degrees!! Isn't that strange??
Let's hope this keeps up for Saturday so my cake doesn't melt.
Squirrelly, can you give me any words of wisdom regarding my icing on a hot day?
They're calling for about 26 degrees, but I don't know if there's humidity on top of that.
Also, I use the half Crisco, half butter and milk recipe. I absolutely hate the all Crisco. Do you think I should use it for basket weave, lattice design, borders and roses? And if so, can I still use my half butter to ice and fill the cake?
I'm going to ice and decorate my cakes on Friday evening/night and keep overnight in a cool basement. Then Sat. morning, I plan to put it into my deep freezer for about 45 min. to get good and cold before I take it out to the park. If it's really hot, we'll come back home to get the cake when they are ready for it so it doesn't sit out all that time. Once we get it there, it will be served right away with none leftover!
Oh, did I mention it's a full sheet (2-12x18's) with two 8" round cakes on tiers for an all day picnic??
Pleeeease, don't tell me I should use the all Crisco for everything!!
Okay, let me have it now.
