The cake should be refrigerated up to 1-3 hours before serving. Remove cake from refrigerator and let sit at room temperature to develop best flavor and texture. Tiered cakes take longer to warm up, so let sit at least 2 hours before serving. Store leftover cake in refrigerator. (Red Velvet, Carrot, Fruit and cakes with Cream Cheese Frosting should stay refrigerated up to 30 minutes to 1 hour before serving) Never freeze a fondant cake.
Keep the cake out of the sun and away from a heat. If a cake gets warm it will begin to loose shape. Buttercream cakes may melt or the buttercream may sweat. Water and Sugar do not mix, if fondant gets wet it will leave dimples. Make sure your cake stand and table are stable if bumped.
Sugar Flowers, Figurines and many sugar decorations are very delicate, don’t touch them if possible.
