A question about a recipe: Crêpe Cake

I have a question about the recipe "Crêpe Cake" from Yossy Arefi. After being chilled overnight, how long do you think this cake could sit out at room temperature before being cut up and served? Do you think it will begin to lose its structural integrity pretty quickly?

I wouldn't leave this out too long. This cake should go straight from the fridge to the table, due to the pastry cream filling. Not only will the pastry cream spoil, but the cake will cut better when it's a little cold. That being said, if you're cutting it at the dinner table and the leftovers sit out during an hour of dessert conversation, it's totally fine. Wouldn't take it to a potluck during the summer, though! Good luck with your cake!

don't worry about the pastry cream spoiling-that would only be a concern on the hottest summer days. It's the ease of cutting when it's all cold- that is the main point here imo. I also suggest you put a slice of orange or a strawberry fan- on the plate; the color will make a big difference in its attraction.
