Q: What is the earliest time I can set up a wedding cake at a reception hall that is climate controlled? I am using buttercream and no fillings.

The reception starts at 5pm — is 10am setup too early?

Editor: Readers, how long do you think buttercream can sit out and still be safe to eat? Any pro cake bakers among our readers ready to weigh in?

Next question?
