Hi. My daughter’s birthday is coming up and I want to make her a Barbie Doll Cake.
I have seen some really nice pics of these cakes covered in fondant. But the last time I used fondant and kept in the fridge, the fondant decorations ‘melted’ away (soft & gooey).
The party is this Saturday and I can’t take time off on Friday to make the cake. I was thinking of making the decorations starting tonight, bake the cake on Thursday night and covering/decorating the cake on Friday night. My only problem is I don’t know where to store the fondant decorations and the cake after it has been covered. The fridge seems logical with the 85 deg weather but am afraid it will become soft? And if I leave the cake out, I am afraid the MBC which I want to use to fill and crumb coat will melt?
Is it ok to slice the cake into three layers and fill with MBC (given the height of the Barbie)? Any suggestions/tips? Help Please!! :(
