Cake bakers & decorators:
How long in advance can a decorated cake be made and safely kept until serving? I have a groom's cake that would need to completed by Tuesday night for a wedding on Saturday. The mother of the groom will have to travel 6 hours with the cake to the wedding destination. She is a very dear friend and I would love to make the cake for her, but I want it to be good!
Please share your opinions!

Thank you,
Nanabug (Debra)

that depends... what filling are you using? what about icing?
Will there be an oppotunity to freeze it for a couple of days?

Tuesday to Saturday is too long in my book without freezing.
