Do you think I am ok to bake my cakes tonight, refrigerate them until tomorrow...then get the buttercream and fondant on them by tomorrow night?

I have the feeling this will totally be ok, but don't want to cause a healthy hazard.

I personally, would not wait that long unless you are planning on freezing the cakes. Refrigeration will dry them out. If you bake them tonight, wrap well in plastic wrap (I normally use 2 layers, then a layer of foil), you can wait until Thursday to pull them out and start on them.

For Saturday weddings, I normally bake ahead & freeze. Pull them out on Thursday, leave them wrapped while thawing. I then fill and crumb coat. Let them settle overnight. On Friday, I then decorate.

Good call, perhaps I will go ahead and freeze until Thursday. I have to work around some scheduling conflicts this week, and trying to figure out how to make it all work.

Thanks!
