What Kind of Filling is It? Lemon, chocolate, caramel, banana, apricot, chocolate chip, and some other fillings are easily recognized in a cake just by looking at them. Don’t make your guests guess what they’re eating. Make tent cards for each table that includes this information or add it to the menu card. With so many food allergies out there, you don’t want to be remembered for making someone sick. To Freeze or Not to Freeze. Never freeze a cake filled with a custard filling because it will separate. Whipped cream cakes have been frozen. It depends on the type of whipping cream used. Check the container to see if it tells you that it can be frozen because you do not want your cake to weep. Rose Berenbaum, in her book, The Cake Bible, shows you how to stabilize the whipping cream with gelatin.
Prepare your cake board – take three 13×19 cake boards and use packing tape to secure them together. Wrap the entire thing in fancy foil which is found at craft stores or online. This will insure that your cake board is strong enough to handle the weight of your massive cake. You can also use Masonite board.
Do some advance planning. Make sure that your clients or hosts are educated about the types of fillings that would be best suited for their events. Fillings can be made from scratch or bought. The fillings made from scratch are highly perishable and should remain refrigerated. New filling recipes should not be tried the night before an event. If you have to do something new, test the recipe out two weeks before. That way, if you need to make changes, you have time to do it or get help. Fillings that come in sleeves at your local cake store can be used right out of the sleeve as they are and the remainder can be refrigerated up to 6 months.
Fire Engine Cake, What little-boy doesn’t like fire fighters? So why not make a fire engine cake. Simply take three 8×4 cakes and cut off the dome of the cakes in order to have a flat surface on both sides. Then take two of the cakes and place them one on top of the other and glue them together with frosting. Take the third cake and cut it in half stack them on top of each other and stand them on end. Then place it on the end in front of the other cake. This will make the cab of your fire engine. Then decorate with red frosting and pipe on the accents.
