please forgive me if this question has already been asked elsewhere........
I was wondering how soon could I bake my son's birthday cake (without freezing it) his birthday is the 29th of this month?
Thanks in advance x
Bake the 27th - decorate 28th.
Depends on the type of cake. If you like mud cakes, you can bake it prefereably a week ahead, and it will taste better when it comes to decorating it.
Sponge cake - same day.
Buttercake - day before.
Then you can always add things like syrups and moist fillings to help with the mouthfeel when a cake is a bit more mature.
