Christmas Cake icing

I am planning on icing my Christmas Cake tommorow to give to my mother to take home with her - once iced, should I cover it with something or just leave it straight in the cake tin? Thanks!

Christmas Cake icing

I wouldn't cover it except loosely - or it can tend to sweat & if you have any coloured decorations or piping then the colour can run. Worst case - you would eventually get mould.

A cake tin is ok for travelling, but once it gets to its destination, loosen the lid & leave it half on/half off. I would never store in a plastic box with a tight seal because that will make it sweat if it gets warm - although would be fine just for the journey.

If it is royal iced or fondant icing the same applies. Best kept in a cool place, ideally under a mesh dome or in a cardboard cake box or if a plastic box or tin, then with a loosened cover.

Thanks for that - it's iced and on the way now, so fingers crossed!
