  • What sort of cake is it debs? Sponge or fruit? Are they ready iced?
    What matters most is how well you walk through the fire

  • If it's fruit, you should be good to get them now - check the best before dates in store if unsure!
  • Yeah you should be able to buy them now if they're fruit cake. however i wouldnt take them out the packets yet cos they'll dry out. Unless you have some airtight cake boxes

    Hi Debs

    I dont think you will need dowels with the ASDA fruit cakes. They are very hard and go on top of each other well. They are tasty and a good price. My sis paid a lot of money for me a chocolate wedding cake which collapsed on itself, two days before the wedding. I whizzed to ASDA which saved the day with their three plain tiered fruit cakes which I decorated with a bit of pink ribbon and the frosting flowers from the original cake, which we rescued from the pile of mush!

    I read on the M&S site that fruit will be ok 12 days beforehand and sponge 5 days beforehand, probs not the same as asda, but you get the jist.

    I suppose you could just check the dates on the cakes Debs xx


    Oh, was gonna say, instead of stacking and having a problem and instead of messing with dowling/pillars etc, why not get a 3 tier cake stand?

    Have a look on ebay, i was looking at them before xx
