I am just wondering what the general thought is about how far in advance one can safely bake and decorate a cake?
I do it a day in advance, but who knows.. I think it depends what kind of fillings your using... I do mines a day because my family always asked for strawberry and bannana....
You can do the cakes even a few days ahead. As long as they are sealed well and refrigerated, they will be ok. Some cakes do taste better doing this.. As for decorating, I prefer to do that the day before..
Mclean-I have this same issue because of my job. I will bake up to a week ahead and freeze them. If I have a cake due on saturday or sunday I fill and frost them thurs. I use all non perishables-sugar shacks frosting and sleeved fillings. My cakes are always still moist and I have not had any "sogginess" from the filling.
