You can bake now if it's for this Sunday, if it's for next you still can bake now you'd just have to freeze the cake.
I'd bake now. Let it cool then add filling and let it settle overnight. You do not need to refrigerate unless the cake has perishable filling/icing. After the cake has had enough time to settle I would ice and decorate it. It will be fresh enough for Sunday. 2-3 days in advance of event with no freezing is not a problem.
thank you soo much, the filling i will be using is custard/pudding with strawberries, so i would have to refriferate correct?? if so, would i have to wrap in seran>?? sorry for all the questions, im still a newbie!! and again, thanks for the info!!
