Making fondant tonight to refrigerate overnight for use tomorrow.
Tomorrow morning - bake! I have 2 cakes to be baked, I'm guessing 2 hours for this as one is a 12" and will take at least an hour - the other is an 8"
Let cakes cool and crumb coat.
I need to roll the fondant and decorate the cakes tomorrow also - I'm not sure how much time to leave between crumb coating and putting on my fondant?
Or...am I better off baking tonight and letting them sit overnight?
so if I bake it tonight to let it sit, and work on it tomorrow, I'm assuming I should just leave it out at room temp - should I cover it with something to prevent it from hardening?
I don't have anything to cover the cake with or to put it in because this is my first time doing a 12" cake and I just don't have anything that large.
Not sure what you can cover it in?? If you have a cake box, place it in that for now.
the next morning I then crumb coat..it can sit while I roll out the fondant
the crumb coat will probably be crusted by then and you will have to add more buttercream to give the fondant something to grab on to..
After I make my fondant, usually several days before,I donot refrigerate it..I wrap it well and put it in a cabinet or the back of the counter to rest...
