If I ice a wedding cake (un stacked) and put it in the fridge (using wilton buttercream- shortening) will it still taste good after 6 days?
Its a long story but I need to make this cake 6 days early!

If you have no choice: Wrap it very well. Freezing is better.

You can make the un-frosted cakes ahead, but do NOT refrigerate them! FREEZE THEM.

This thread has a lot of information.

One of the forum members has some superb advice on this thread:

Box completed cake. Wrap box in at least 2 layers of saran, one layer of foil. Freeze. 24hrs. before display, place in fridge still boxed & wrapped. At least 2 hrs. before serving, place still boxed & wrapped cake on counter to come to room temp. When ready to display, remove wrapping.
