Frosted a cake last night with a crusting buttercream. I put it in the fridge and forgot to cover it. Now it has a refridgerator taste. I don't ususally use this type of buttercream. Will that taste go away as the cake warms up, will the crust prvent it from permeating the whole cake. I'm ready to run to the grocery store and by an undecorated one. What should I do??
I would not count on the taste to recover. The cake MIGHT be ok, but you cant know until you taste it.
Unfortunately for you, I agree with JoAnnB. I probably wouldn't chance it.
I did something similar once - made BC and cream filling with butter that I had in the freezer and didn't realize it was freezer burned...totally could taste it. I had to throw out both batches.
Thanks for the replies. I went with it anyway. I decorated with fresh frosting so I'm hoping that will help temper the taste.
