I have my first wedding cake order for this Saturday. It's a 10" stacked on a 12" and then a pillared 6" with 2 heart cakes on both sides of the tiered cake. I started baking the cakes Tuesday night and finished last night. (It's Thursday today.) Did I start baking too early. I was going to make all the frosting tonight and work on some other orders for this weekend and then tomorrow since I have the day off I was going to decorate and stack them. Is that okay? I have each layer wrapped in saran wrap and then in aluminum foil and in the fridge. If I frost them tomorrow can I just put them back in the fridge, not covered until delivery Saturday afternoon?

THANKS SO MUCH!

You didn't start too soon. Your plan seems just fine. Good luck!

If delivery is tomorrow around 1:30 for this wedding, if I decorate and stack the cakes today do they need to be in the fridge til delivery? They are just white and chocolate cake w/buttercream?

Thanks!

If your buttercream is not meringue based, it should be fine out of the fridge too. Make sure it's not too warm where the cakes are kept, though.
