Ok bakers: I'm making my brother a Boston Cream Pie for his birthday on Sunday (his fave). Since we have a snow day (in Austin, can you believe it?), I would like to bake the sponge cake today and assemble it with the pastry cream on Sunday. I've refrigerated other layer cakes for a day or two before putting them together, but never a sponge cake. Would it be ok????

Also reminded me of when I was little and the whole family (the WHOLE family - Aunts, Uncles, Grandma, cousins, brothers, sisters, moms, dads) would go to the beach every weekend and someone would ALWAYS make a Boston Cream Pie. For at the beach! We were, um, unique.
Snow in Austin?! Ugh! At least it will melt quickly.
