When I make a cake I typically bake 2 days before the cake is due, decorate the day before the cake is due, and obviously deliver on the due date.

However, I am wondering if it would be ok to do it differently this time due to time constraints. The cake is due Sunday, so I am baking today, and I would like to at least ice (BC) it today. Do you thik that icing it today is too far in advance?

I will also be making a large Batman emblem out of fondant. I would like to make it ahead of time too. Is there a way that I can safely store it without it drying up or going bad? Then I will just place it on the cake the day of the party.

So, help me out if you can!

I can't imagine why there would be a problem with you finishing the cake today... To keep the fondant plaque soft, I would wrap it well in plastic, and then put it into one of the new reynolds bags that has the vacuum pump with it and suck out the air. They are only $10.00 at Wal-Mart... I love that thing! icon_smile.gif

Good luck,
