Need some advise, It is upper 70's in the house, and I have baked a cake for Saturday delievery It is just baked not crumbcoated or anything yet. I usually put them in tupperware and set on a table in my (cake/guest room) so it is out of the way. I am worried how the warm weather will effect it? Hubby says he isnt turning on air conditioner yet , ( lol we just turned the heat off) If you can't freeze the cakes do you try to find coolest place in home? and what if there isnt any when the temps get up there? Fridge ok? in the tupperware ? I am newer at this and last spring and summer didn't have many cakes to bake, now I am and I have to bake ahead of time by at least a day

The fridge will be fine and the tubberware is a good idea so they don't soak up any odors in there. thumbs_up.gif

Thank you, I tried to get the containers in fridge, too full getting ready for easter dinner also. ( think it about time to get another fridge or a small freezer just for my cakes. I am just going to have to have it set in the tupperware on a table and turn the ceiling fan on. Sure hope it will be ok

I think it will be fine on the table, wrapped up in plastic wrap or put in a tupperware. I leave cakes wrapped up on my counter all the time, and it's usually around 78 in my house in the summer (because I can't afford a $300 electric bill icon_biggrin.gif ). I don't think the fan will matter much one way or the other.

When you frost the cake it may be time to turn on the AC. Sometimes frosting, especially with real butter, is hard to work with when the house is warm.
