It depends on the heat and humidity in your house. I just finished baking all the layers/tiers for a wedding cake for's only Wednesday. I baked 2 of each: 6", 10", 12". I am leaving the cakes out over night, frosting them tomorrow morning then putting them in the fridge for one night. It's been hot here, so I don't want to leave the cakes out for more than one night.

As long as your filling does not require refrigeration (my bc does not), then it is just fine to leave out over night.

I always decorate my cakes (wedding or otherwise) the day before and then put them in my basement overnight in the summer. It's cooler down there--but now "refirgerator" cold.

Personally, I don't care for cold, cold cakes--it makes them feel dry.

Good luck this weekend!
