I have a two-tiered anniversary cake to do for Saturday. I usually do my cakes the day before I need them. But I think I am going to have to bake these early. What is the best way to store the cakes before I have time to decorate them? I am not sure I want to go the freezing route. I would prefer to keep them fresh.

The longer they sit out the shorter time the customer has to finish it off......leftovers will not hold up. There is nothing wrong w/fzing icon_smile.gif

Wrap it in plastic wrap, then into a ziploc or other plastic bag. It will keep up to 3-4 days. If you fz it it will keep up to 7 days once thawed.

also if you wrap with plastic wrap when it is warm then freeze, it will put the moisture into the cake and the cake will remain moist

I am a stay at home mom, so I ALWAYS freeze my cakes, since I do a little decorating at a time. Everyone has always said the cake was delicious and moist, so don't be afraid to freeze them. Good luck!!
