HI. I’ve got an order for a 2-tier fondant covered cake (All occasion downy yellow cake) with a ganache filling. The tiers are 8” square and 6” square with a gumpaste loop bow topper, royal icing leaves, and fondant flowers, strips and dots.
Can I finish decorating it the night before, stick it fully decorated in the fridge and then deliver take it out for delivery the following day or will that melt the gumpaste, fondant/royal icing accents? In a pinch I could keep the covered cake in the fridge but put off placing the decorations until early the next morning. ut I don’t really wanna do that unless I really have to.
Could I keep the fully decorated cake in a cool room (about 78 degrees F or 25 deg C)? I know it will keep but will the cake (filling, decorations, etc) be stable enough for transport if the cake stands overnight at this temperature?
It needs to be delivered by 1PM. I can’t work on it in the morning of delivery because I’ve got another job (teaching prenatal class) to do.
