thats it really. ds's birthday/party on wednesday. tomorrow and tuesday are very busy. was going to make the cake today and cover it in that roll out icing. will it still be nice on wednesday? it'll be quite big when its finished so wont be able to put it in a tin.

you should be fine if it is a madeira or victoria sponge. fatless sponge goes stale very quickly but any cakes made with the creaming method should stay fresh for 4-5 days.

oh pippel happy birthday for wednesday smile ds will be 4. am making an omnitrix cake, god help me!

ooo ceres i never thought about making madeira cake, am making a victoria sponge. do you think the icing will kindof seal the cake as it were?
