I have a wedding coming up in a couple of weeks. Just found out today that my mom needs surgery that has been scheduled 3 days before the wedding. I would like to have the cake done so I can be with her.

Is that too far in advance to complete the cake? I can keep it in the frig until the day of delivery.

I don't wanna mess up the cake but honestly will likely do a better job if I do it ahead of time. I am pretty stressed about my mom, she is my rock. Thanks!

I always start my Saturday orders on Wednesday. Don't think another day will hurt a bit.

I have done it before with no problems! I was able to wrap it tightly....and the flavors actually came out very well and was moist and tasted Great too.
Lastly, I pray all goes well with your mom!

I personally think cake tastes better after it sits a while.

Best wishes on your mother's surgery

Thanks ya'll! I can't see doing it any other way. Appreciate the wishes and prayers too.

Are you baking and everything on the day before her surgery? Or are you talking about baking like Sunday/Monday, fill and stack on Tues, then decorate on Wed?
