Now that you have your cake in your hands you're probably wondering:
"How am I supposed to handle this and not mess it up?"
We got you. A Cake is a piece of edible art and we all want it to look good for as long as possible.
Here's a few tips for the best cake experience.
Make sure to keep your cake refrigerated until 2-3 hours before you plan to serve it. If the cake doesn't fit in your refrigerator try to keep it in the coldest room. The reccomended temperature is 65-70 degrees farenheit. Avoid direct sunlight.
Cakes need to be transported on a flat surface. When transporting the cake in the car NEVER place the cake on the seats. The floorboard is almost always the best option. If someone else is in the car they can also hold the cake as flat as possible on their lap. Make sure the temperature in the car is cold, turn on the A/C if necessary and NEVER turn on the heater.
3. Cake Stand:
If you're planning to use a cake stand make sure its bigger than the cake board and that it can support the weight of the cake and keep it level.
When serving the cake, make sure to remove any non edible decorations, like Cardstock toppers, cloth flowers, etc. Use a sharp knife and make sure to clean the blade after each cut to avoid smudging the frosting. It's also a good idea to have extra plates or napkins available to catch any crumbs.
After the cake has been cut, it's important to store it properly to extend its shelf life. Wrap the cake tightly in plastic wrap or place it in an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator. To prevent the cake from drying out, you can also place a piece of plastic wrap or parchment paper directly on top of the cake before wrapping it. When storing a cake with frosting, it's important to keep it away from strong-smelling foods, as the frosting may absorb the odor.
