Okay... I need some help with this one... my first Wedding Cake.. 3 tier, 16, 12 and 8... chocolate Ganache with strawberries (with tips up) on top of each layer... On the strawberries..what is everyones thoughts... I don't want the strawberrries to 'run' into the cake.. do I wash them today (wedding is tomorrow) and let them dry today, cut them tomorrow and put them directly on the cake, or do I wash and cut them today, lay them to dry.. then put them on tomorrow... I've ran it both ways in my head.. and thought I would put it out there for my fellow ladies!! THANKS!!
Usually those strawberries that we see on top of some cakes are not washed. Just cleaned with a paper towel or a clean kitchen towel.
What happens is that after being washed they must be used soon, otherwise they'll start to deteriorate.
If they are going to be sliced, I think that you should do it tomorrow.
Strawberries like many other fruits are very delicate.
Thank you so much.. that helps me in my process...
