How far in advance can I frost mini-cakes?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi all!

 

A friend asked me to help her bake some mini cakes in a jar for a party coming up, and while I am excited to help her, I just don't have a ton of free time!  The party is on Saturday, but Friday we will be busy setting up and decorating.  I am baking (and freezing) the cakes this weekend, but when it comes time to frost, when should I do it?  I was thinking of either the Tuesday or Wednesday before the party, but can possibly do it on Thursday as well if that would be better.  We are just doing a plain buttercream and/or a fudge frosting (if I find a recipe by then).  

 

My cakes will be very similar to this picture:

 

 

 

Any suggestions would be wonderful - I always love all the tips I find on ChefTalk!

 

Thanks!

P.S.  Oh, and any suggestions on a tasty fudge buttercream would be appreciated too!

Oh, and I am making approx 90 jars - does anyone have a suggested about of buttercream frosting that I would need to do this many?  I was going to triple my recipe that makes 1 quart if I can use the big mixer at work.  Wasn't sure if that would be enough though.  Then again, I tend to think I always need more and wind up with a ton extra that my coworks love to just eat with a spoon, haha!

 

Thanks!
