okay i have a very big cake due this weekend, (biggest i've ever done) I want to do a lot of stuff a head of time but i don't want to freeze my cakes, they tasted wierd last time i froze this recipe. This is my plan and I want to know if it will work

Wednesday - Bake cakes and wrap them in saran wrap and leave them out on the counter

Thursday - Stack cakes and fill them with buttercream icing and let them settle ( while covered in saran wrap)

Friday - decorate cakes and finish up

Saturday 11a.m. serve cakes at party?

That will be fine if you are not in a really humid area.
Can you refrigerate them? When they are well wrapped they will not dry out in that short of time but will stay fresh.

Sounds ok, but I would bake and fill Thursday since the filling is just buttercream and not something else to mix. Maybe mix up all the buttercream on Wed.
