refrigerating cakes

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi! I am planning on making my son's wedding cake in two weeks. A fellow cake decorator advised me to bake it Thursday and decorate and assemble it on the Friday morning before the wedding and then refrigerate. Would it be alright to refrigerate it until Satuday afternoon ? I'm worried that it will loose it's moist taste. Can anyone advise me. P.S. the frosting is a chocolate buttercream.
Thanks from a very nervous Mom

That's totally fine!!!! I have to bake ahead when I have several cake orders in one weekend.

The cake will taste nice and moist as long as its served at room temp.

Good luck!

Unless you're using a perishable frosting or filling there's no need to refrigerate the cake. Just box it up to keep it clean and safe.

That's true too....I just always refrigerate because I think its easier to transport...

I also refrigerate my cakes all the time because I use perishable fillings.

Try to design your cake without a perishable filling so that you don't need to refrigerate it. Actually, refrigeration dries out cakes. It's a relative humidity issue. Unless the cake has a perishable filling , never, never refrigerate a cake.

It will be fine sitting on the counter.

I never refrigerate my cakes. The only two times I had issues with the icing was when I refrigerated the cakes, and thus my stance of "i NEVER refrigerate my cakes".

I always refrigerate my cakes, especially for ease of transporting, my cakes are moist, It doesn't seem to dry them out. I notice that on cake boss, he refrigerates his cakes, I guess some do and some don't. I do know they taste better after coming to room temp though.

Pros like the show Cake Boss have a different refrigerator with different humidity levels than the ones found in the home kitchen.
