I am making a cake in Jamaica and have a couple of questions. The Bride is having a three tiered cake. The bottom layer is Strawberry Cheese cake and the other two are normal cake these are no issue.
She wants fondant on all three layers, my first question is how long can the cheese cake stay out of the fridge? Also, I am traveling from Canada to Jamaica and plan to take the fondant with me, will it be OK for a couple of days without refrigeration?
Thanks Helen Hi Helen, Cheesecake needs to be refrigerated. Fondant does not, and should not be refrigerated if possible. So your fondant will be fine traveling as long as it is well wrapped. It will dry very quickly and become impossible to work with.
Are you baking your cakes first and traveling with them? or are you baking them in Jamaica? If you are baking first, then the cheesecake and any cake with a filling that will go bad, such as a custard or mousse, will need to be boxed with dry ice.
I need more details from you to give a complete answer. Thanks, use the comment link right below this post and add more details ok. Thanks
