Wedding cake prep is well underway in the Bitesize Bakehouse and you can definitely tell!
You know I recently said I was going to be making some of my friends wedding cakes this year (here)? Well, the time has finally rolled around.
I am making two sets of friends their wedding cakes this summer – just two weeks apart from each other – and then my own wedding cake shortly after that! So, to prepare, we brought a small chest freezer and I have been slowly baking the sponges ahead of the dates so that I am (somewhat) ready when the day to prep arrives.
I only have a small, single oven, so it’s one batch at a time for me. Slowly but steady progress. These have all been baked, cooled, cling-filmed, foiled, clingfilmed again (because I am paranoid about the defrost process and need it to work out ok!!!) and popped into the new freezer to lie in wait for their crumb coat dates in a few weeks.
Do you have any tips for cake prepping? Or just getting ahead to simplify finishing on the big cakes? Would love to know if you do…
Right, I am off to bake a few more.
Wish me luck!
