DS2's party in on Saturday. Am at work all week and Thursday and Friday evenings are gonig to be hectic. If I make a sponge or madeira type cake will it keep OK?

No room in the freezer atm.

Madeira would keep fine if wrapped or iced. When are you going to ice it?

I was going to ice it Saturday morning. The party is at 4. I can wrap it in baking parchments and put it in a tin. How about a sponge?

Why are you talking about madeira or sponge - go for chocolate girl - yummmmmmm grin

ps airtight tupperware is good, as are foil and baking parchment

Madeira is a denser,slightly heavier cake than Sponge and keeps for longer IMO. My choice of the two definitely and will last for ages if stored well.

Yep I guess so bagebird. I just know my sponge recipe by heart and can make it without scales (which are still broken).

Have no tupperware.

Chocolate madeira is standard issue for birthday cakes round here. Good choice.
