Hello everyone, I have a little dilemma. I have to make 1 2 tier cake and 1 3 tier cake for an event. I want to make these cakes well ahead of time. How do I store them and keep them fresh past 3 days? These cakes will be covered in fondant. They are going to be regular cakes without filling.
Freeze them Put them in a cake box wrapped in plastic wrap or a plastic bag If you can’t find boxes big enough then freeze it for an hour or two then wrap in several layers of plastic before returning to the fzr
Do I freeze it with the fondant on? I don't have any boxes that are big enough. So don't wrap it just freeze it for an hour or 2 then wrap it and re-freeze? When should I take it out to thaw?
It’s fzn unwrapped to set the icing so it doesn’t get messed up Do you have room in the fzr to complete each stacked etc? Or are you going to fz each tier separately then finish the day before or day of? take them out the night before ; leave wrapped several hours til they come to room temp If there is any sweating DO NOT touch it will evaporate in time then proceed if you are going to work on them
Of forgot — yes they can be fzn w/fondant already on them Reach tier can be as completed as possible ready to be put together and decorating finished I suggest finishing up the day before event just in case there’s any problems
