i'm making a wedding cake for my stepdaughters mother. it is a 16,12,8" tierd cake, buttercream frosting with just some ribbon around each tier and a cricut cutout on the bottom/top tier. i've already cut out the cricut piece and stored it but i don't know which day to start baking as i really don't have extra freezer/fridge space. i only really do this for friends and family and i have only made one other wedding cake and that was last october for a friend.
the wedding is this saturday and i know i won't be able to work on the cake much on wed. because my son is graduating kindergarten and my oldest girls have a track meet that day.
if i bake tomorrow and wrap the cakes, fill and crumb coat on thursday and then spend the day on friday with the final buttercream and ribbon, does that sound like i'm giving myself enough time?
i honestly have no idea about a cake of this size...its kinda overwhelming!
I think you can do it! Decorating the cake will take a few hours, so if you do everything ahead of time, like you said, it will work out great!
IDK, without a freezer, it sounds a little early to bake to me.
