Storing a Cake for a Delayed Event

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 

I made a 3 tier wedding cake last weekend for an anniversary party that was postponed due to a death in the family.  How do I store the cake for a week so that it will still be edible on this Saturday?  Thanks in advance for your advice!

 

Blessings,

Cara

Last weekend? As in well overEIGHT days at this point? And where's it been since you finished it?

If it hasn't been frozen this whole time, I don't know that it would be salvageable for the party. I hear mud cakes last a while, but I don't know if 2 weeks is even over their limit for freshness.
Bake again, would be my suggestion.

In the trash can.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

Unless it's already in the freezer, then DD is 100% right, the trash is the only place that cake should be going.

'last' weekend could also be one to two days ago--

 

if the decoration and icing can handle it you could try the freezer--i get the heebie jeebies freezing decorated cake but lots of people do it --

 

i think you meant this past weekend--yes?

Even if it was just this past weekend, I'm going to assume it was made on Friday, that's already 4 days of sitting out. Add in the day to defrost and day of the party, that is almost a week which is simply too long, imo.

Unless it is a fruitcake or a mudcake.

Noooo! Make a new cake! I would not give a customer a cake that old.

If it's been a room temp this whole time, I don't know how well it will freeze now. I don't think I would feel comfortable giving it to a customer.

Sorry I wasn't more specific.  It was made on Friday the 17th for a party on the 18th.  It has been in the fridge since we found out early on the 18th that the party was postponed.  It was only at room temperature from Friday evening when we finished it (around 9:00 P.M.) to Saturday morning (around 10:30 A.M.).  So, let's try again on that question...

What sort of cake is it? As in any fillings etc. :)

Just a regular white cake with buttercream frosting?  No fillings.
