Hello, this is my first post
I was wondering how I am meant to store my cake? It is a mud cake with a buttercream crumb coating and fondant on top. I understand the buttercream needs refrigderation but have been told not to refridgerate fondant as it will sweat. How long out of the fridge can I leave the buttercream?
Thanks in advance!
buttercream does not need to be refrigerated unless you are saving git for a week or more. But a cake that is decorated with it can sit out for a few days. Sugar is a natural preservative. This cake straight from the mouth of my health inspector via me.
I put my fondant covered cake in the fridge all the time and they do not sweat.
What sort of buttercream did you use? Buttercreams with butter or crisco with icing sugar, milk/water and flavouring can be left out for a few days and don't need to be refridgerated
Thanks for your replies! The buttercream is butter, icing sugar (I think it's called powdered sugar in the US) and a splash of milk So I can leave it out for 48 hours with no problems then?
I have seen numerous times on here the debate to refrigerate or not. I know I have also seen often that you do not need to refrig. buttercream but if you don't, doesn't yours get very soft/melt? I know I find it hard to decorate with when it is warm and with summer approaching...........Just wondering if others have this problem.
