Ds1 will be 13 next Wednesday. He has requested a hedgehog cake. No doubt due to the huge amounts of icing! Could I make the cake on Monday and then ice on Tuesday night? Would it all still be ok? I won't have time to do both on Tuesday night due to mum taxi duties.
Thank you!

Yes. When you have made cake and it's cooled down, place in a Tupperware style container until the next day and it will be fine. This is what I normally do anyway.

Yes. That would be perfect timing. Do a crumb coat on the cake first and let it set before you do the fancy stuff.

Thanks both. What is a crumb coating??

It's a thin coating of buttercream that you put on first and then leave to set. That way you don't get any rogue cake crumbs in the icing. It really does work.
