Does my cake need refrigeration?
Cakes should be refrigerated prior to serving and when keeping left overs. Most people prefer to serve the cake at room temperature to allow for a creamy consistency of the butter cream (our butter cream is made with all butter and will have the consistency of refrigerated butter is served right out of the fridge). Keep cakes at room temp for 2 hours before serving to allow for optimal taste and texture.
What is fondant frosting?
Fondant frosting is a sugar dough that is applied to the surface of a cake to make it very smooth, almost porcelain like. It does go over the buttercream frosting, so that if your guests do not prefer the fondant, they can simply peel it back and eat the frosting underneath.
