Cake with mouse inside and fondant outside

by Theresa
(San Jose, CA)

Hi there!

I'm making a cake this Friday for Saturday and I wanted to try your strawberry mouse recipe, but I also plan on applying fondant. I understand that the cake must be refrigerated because of the mouse, but I am worried about the fondant that will be on top. I will apply the fondant Saturday morning. Also, will it be safe to display the cake on the table? Will it go bad due to the mouse?

Hi Theresa,

If you're not applying the fondant until Saturday morning, I think it will be fine. Just refrigerate the cake until you add the fondant, then leave it out after that. It's not like you're leaving it out on the counter for days at a time :-)
