DDs birthday is coming up and I want to do her a 2-tier birthday cake; I have never tried one before. I already have the baking trays but am wondering about the logistics.
I will be baking the cake the day before - do I store the layers in separate tupperwares and then put it all together with icing on the actual day, or can I put it all together the day before and stick it in the fridge? Will it all collapse overnight if I do that? WWYD?
I'm going to make 4 thinner cakes (my round tins are pretty shallow). Buttercream inside and out - my DD's special request, she loves that stuff! And fridge because I live in Brazil - even though its winter here I think it'll melt/go off. So I guess I'll ice it on the day.
I'm not doing any fancy icing tricks though, just covering it in lilac buttercream with a scattering of those silver icing balls (its a Hannah Montana birthday so I'll just stick a Hannah candle on top for decoration).
I've been dying to try a 2-tier cake for ages, but keep putting it off. This year its mostly family so if its a flop, who cares!
