i am making the yummy strawberry-lemonade cake that scary_kisses posted a while ago, and i have no idea how to ice/fill it! i'm scared that the filling will get absorbed into the cake and then it gets all soggy and gross... and how do i know if the icing is going to turn out hard or soft after a while?
(and can i make soft cakes with a spring-form? or should i get a real cake tin?)
also, does icing get hard when refrigerated? can i make a cake with icing 2 days in advance of it being eaten?
