I have 2 cakes both 3 layered 2 tiered cakes and a dozen cupcakes due on the 7th. and 12 cupcakes for the 5th. all buttercream w/ fondant accents. any suggestions on how not to feel overwelmed next week? I have most of the fondant figures made for one cake but not the other. I need to put a motor in the other cake but havent decided on the background on that cake yet. Its a transportation cake so I wouldnt think cuting out trees and ect would be that hard.
I have the fondant toppers made for the cupcakes almost done for Thursday the 5th. What else should I do? tia!

Break it down.

YOu have to bake 12 cakes and 24 cupcakes. The cupcakes I'd bake first thing, throw 'em in the freezer and get those out of the way. Then I'd bake the 12 cakes, saran and freeze. Make all the icing you're going to need. Have the boards covered and ready to go.

On assembly day, just pull the cakes out of the freezer as you need them (they only need about an hour or less to thaw enough to work with), and set up an assembly line.
