Hello, a costumer wants me to make a cake filled with vanilla pudding and sliced freshe bananas. I have never use pudding or fresh fruit as a filling so I am a little concerned. I need to reply to her today. Wouldn't the bananas go bad? I have read that you have to brush them with lemon so that they don't change color but I have also read that even if you refrigerate the cake, the bananas go bad within 24 hours. Is this true? Also, can I use the pudding that is ready to serve so that I don't have to have 2 perishable items? Any suggestions will be appreciated.
BTW, she wants me to make a cake like the one I made for another customer (click on the link to see the pic.) I don't think it can be done because if It needs to be refrigerated the red buttercream will stain the fondant cake when I take it out of the fridge right? I guess I can make 2 separate cakes on the same cake board. Let me knwo what you think. TIA
