As a cake decorator who sells their cakes or a home baker who prepares desserts for friends and family, it is important to know all of the facts about fillings, which ones need to be refrigerated and which can be left out at room temperature. Your reputation can depend on it, and you certainly do not want to make anyone sick. We know that butter cream frosting does not hold up well in the heat. Think about a fondant covered cake with a filling. Do you think it’s safe to be out in the heat? Maybe not. Chocolate ganache filling melts if left in the heat for a period of time. Did you know that? It’s deceiving. It sets firmly so you can use it as a filling in sculpted cakes and are able to shape it into truffles that are delicious to eat but when a ganache filled cake sits out in the heat, the ganache gets soft and starts to disintegrate which, if it is a stacked cake, could come tumbling down.
Start assembling your cake. Take some of the frosting and spread it across the center of the cake board. This will be your ”glue” to secure the cake to the board. Turn one of the parchment lined cookie sheet cake ones onto the cake board. Center it in place on the board before removing the cookie sheet and then peel off the parchment paper. Turn the cookie sheet over and set it on top of the cake layer. Apply a little pressure to make sure that it is secured to the board. Apply frosting to the top of the cake and spread out evenly. Take the next cookie sheet cake and turn over onto the frosted layer. The easiest way to do this is to lift the cookie sheet up against the wide side and then quickly flip it onto the frosted layer. Do not remove the cookie sheet until you shift the cake into place and make it level with the previous layer. Then remove the cookie sheet and peel off the parchment paper. Turn the cookie sheet over and set it on top of the cake layer. Apply a little pressure to make sure that it is secured to the previous frosted layer. Repeat this process again with the next two layers. Trim any excess cake off the sides with a sharp knife so you have a nice even side. Crumb coat and refrigerate until firm.
