I need to put some fresh raspberries in a filling for a cake to be picked up and eaten on Friday.

Is it okay to fill it today or should I wait until Friday morning? How long should I tell my client to keep any leftovers? It is a small cake but I want to be clear to her because of the mold issue.


PS- I won't do this again. The fresh fruit has me up at 5AM and I am not a morning person! icon_rolleyes.gif

They will be fine for tomorrow, for sure. Depending on how frsh they are to start with, and how cool they keep the cake they could be good up till a week. If she keeps the cake cool they will be fine for a few days no problem.

Thanks Mike! I was hoping to get ALL the cakes iced today so I can just decorate tomorrow.

Hmmm, maybe this will be the first weekend this month I don't pull an all-nighter!

I do fresh fruit cakes most of the time. I try and buy the freshest there is. Then I would fill them upto 24 hours in advance, make sure it is refregirated and the customer should be good for another 2 days atleast. Fruit and cream is our signature cake.
