So I am baking a cake for a party but that morning I won't have time to bake and frost the cake. I also thought of baking the cake the day before and assembling it the day of but that won't do either. So my final option is to bake and frost the cake the day before and then just transport it. Ultimately it will be a simple cake like this one
. So my questions:
- I was planning on doing a swiss buttercream frosting. Is this the best icing for this endevaour? I am afraid of it melting or getting hard before the party. Any tips to make sure it doesn't?
- So once I finish the cake do I refrigerate it? Should I be worried about condensation?
- Any tips on keeping the cake moist?
Any other tips are greatly appreciated!
