I'm new to Cake Central.
I have decided what kind of wedding cake I want for my December wedding but its kind of too low-tech for the cake decorators around where I live to make. Also no one except DF and I like the idea of it, so I am going to make it myself.
We want a plain simplicity chocolate cake in three layers, filled with chocolate ganache and covered in buttercream (maybe swiss meringue buttercream - not sure yet). Then we want to have individual square cupcakes in the same chocolate cake, but in two layers (so really cupcakes sliced in half) and again filled with ganache and covered in buttercream.
I've made a batch of cupcakes and frozen them for about six weeks and they have thawed well, and are still good to eat, so I think I can bake up all the cupcakes before the wedding so they are ready to go. Maybe also bake the main cake ahead of time?
What I want to know is how far ahead of time can I fill the cakes with ganache, and then, how far ahead of time can I frost them with the buttercream icing?
Have asked this question in other forums, and gotten no constructive advice in return. I hope someone out there in Cake Central Land can help?
