I don't bake and decorate in the same day, a cake needs time to rest and stabilize before I can decorate it - otherwise I always seem to have problems with sinking, bulging or other defects.
After leveling, I wrap the cake in two layers of plastic wrap and leave set overnight UPSIDE DOWN. Then I decorate the next day. Alternately, to bake ahead, I level the cake, wrap in two layers of plastic wrap and freeze immediately. Then when I'm ready, I take it out of the freezer and thaw overnight upside down and decorate the next day.
I've kept extras in my freezer for my family or unexpected guests and they taste alright for about a month.[/quote]
