I proudly tell my customers that I bake the Weds or Thurs of their event, throw it in the freezer pretty quickly to trap all that moisture that keeps it from drying out. They seem to like that idea! And the fact that it's only frozen for a night or two makes them say, "Oh, OK...that's cool with me!"
Unfortunately, many people in my neck of the woods are still clueless about how much time it takes to complete a cake. Couple of aunts dropped by on Mother's Day for coffee and cake that I made for my mom. It was 1pm and one of them asked if I baked the cake that same morning.
I told her I baked on Friday night and decorated Saturday night (it was meant to be a surprise, so I could only work on the cake after my mom went to bed) because I wanted to give it my mom early Mother's Day morning. She reacted with such shock and disdain.. "WHAT? So many days ago? *insert disgusted expression* Is it still edible??".. Erm, well right up to that point you were happily stuffing your face with it and declaring that it was good, so...
Sigh. Needless to say she is now on my NCFY (No Cake For You) list.
