I have a few questions about how far in advance to bake, frost and prepare some party food for a Sunday birthday (this Sunday)
Those in the know (and who have the time), do you mind passing on some advice. Any pointers will be appreciated!
* A (packet) chocolate cake that will be shaped to make a fire engine.
How early can I bake the cake? How early can I frost the cake? What do you find works better - butter or cream cheese frosting? I don't have a cake cover. How would I best store it if I do make it at least the day before?
How early can I cut the fruit and assemble? Do you have an alternative to wooden skewers?
