Buttercream
by: Melanie

I have filled my sponge cakes with buttercream. How long should I leave it before putting on the fondant, and how long should the buttercream be left out for. It is Thursday night now and I need the cake for Saturday morning.

Thanks in advance Mel x

Hi Mel, Place your filled and crumb coated cakes in the fridge or freezer for a while to chill. Once they are set, you can put a coat of frosting over the crumb coat to make the cake nice and smooth. Place your fondant on next and safely leave it out until Saturday. In a cool spot of course. Or covered well in plastic or tightly shut box in the fridge. You may want to invest in my ebook here

What do I add to the cake mixture when freezing
by: Anonymous

Hi! I am making a wedding cake for next weekend and wanted to freeze the cakes ahead of time and I feel like I should add something to the cake mixture to help with freshness when time to eat the cake. But I'm not sure what to add, I've heard of adding lemon juice but not certain that is correct. These are just a plain vanilla cakes? Do you have any advise for me? Also how much do I add for each later? Layers are 12,10,8,&6 and 2 inches thick (I am making each layer a total of 4 inches thick)

adding lemon juice
by: Lorelie

You don't really need to do anything special to the layers. If you want to add some extra flavor do lemon juice mixed with sugar to taste and then brush that onto each layer before filling. You will find that the white cake here on this site does not need extra moistening. Sorry this is coming back to you soooo late. You obviously already made your wedding cake. Hope it went well.
