The clouds are starting to part. The sun is starting to shine. And the temperature is starting to warm up. The days of our cool to downright cold winter are fading away. While I personally love to shed all the layers of jackets and feel the warm sun against my face...my cakes...well...they do not.
I know the photos look gorgeous of a beautiful cake proudly displayed with a gorgeous grassy background is one we all dream of. But, for those of us wanting to enjoy a wedding during warmer months it's better we place the cakes inside.
I really recommend if the temperature is higher than 75 degrees, it needs to be placed inside. I also never recommend that the cake is placed in direct sunlight, regardless of temperature. Why? Well, buttercream melts. Even if the cake doesn't completely fall apart it will begin to soften and look droopy, maybe even lean a little. Fondant cakes don't fair well either with the warm outside temperatures. For one, they crack in humidity. But also, underneath that smooth fondant texture is buttercream...which will be leaking out the bottom of your gorgeous cake if left in unfriendly cake temperatures.
For those of us who have both inside and outside cake placement options, let's start thinking about the perfect indoor place to showcase your delicious dessert!
