I need any advice I can get!
Friends are celebrating their wedding at their ranch in Northern California. Rather than having a wedding cake, they have asked several of us to bring cakes—so while they won’t be traditional wedding cakes, it would be best if they weren’t completely casual either. Here’s the problem though: guests, including us, are arriving a day early and camping out on the property, where temperatures range from pretty cool in the night to very hot in the afternoon. My best solution, I think, is to make a cake in its entirety, freeze it, and let it thaw gradually in a cooler over the day or so. Any additional, final decorations would have to be pretty minor. Help! Rose Levy Beranbaum’s The Cake Bible doesn’t cover situations like this one!
(Oh, and $10 off your order of $50 or more in the Food52 Shop, too.)
