Final layer of icing question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am doing my first big event tomorrow and I have already baked, filled, and crumb coated my cakes. I want to put the final layer of icing on my cakes and decorate them tonight but need to know how long I should remove them from the fridge before applying my final layer? I am using the Viva towel method to get smooth buttercream (unless there is a better method, I am open to suggestions!) and then applying fondant decorations. I would love to be able to get this done tonight because tomorrow I am baking 10 dozen cupcakes for the event so will be pressed for time! Thank you for your help in advance!

Ice it as soon as you take it out of the refrigerator--there's no reason to wait... then when your frosting crusts do your Viva towel thing. Or use the Melvira roller method...that's good too. I usually get my cake cold again to set the buttercream and then start adding the fondant decor. I usually keep my cakes cold up until delivery and then deliver at least an hour before an event starts.

If I am ever on life support, unplug me...

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!
