Hi there, I'm hoping all you experienced bakers will be able to give me some advice.
Normally I would bake a cake 4 days before its needed, carve and frost the next day, and give myself 2 days to decorate. I normally use a pound cake recipe (we call it Victoria Sponge here in the UK) for my cakes.
I've been asked to make a cake that is going to need about 4 days just to decorate. I'm worried that if I bake the cake a couple of days earlier, it will start to dry out by the time it is eaten. I thought maybe I could bake, frost and freeze in advance, then take the cake out 4 days before its needed and start to fondant ice straight away. Does anyone know if this would work? Or should I just bake it early and keeop my fingers crossed it doesn't dry out?
Thank you all,
