with icing depends on what type of icing and filling, and most of the time the filling is going to go bad before the cake will (expecially if it's a perishable one)

I don't like to have a cake around longer than 1 week total (from time of thawing, as i freeze my cakes after i've baked) to the time my family or my customer eats the last piece. Now i have had some family tell me they've had the cake 2 weeks later and it was still good, but i don't recommend it.

Well I was gonna bake my cakes and cupcakes tomorrow for Saturday. So I think they will still be ok. Maybe just buttercream icing them a lil then Fondant them on Friday Night or Saturday Morning. U think thats ok?

Baking on Thursday for a Saturday event is right on schedule.

I bake/fill/crumb-coat on Thursday and then decorate on Friday so that I have Saturday morning free to fix an issues that crop up.

If the cupcakes are from a separate batch of batter than the cake, I would bake those late Friday. I don't like to have cuppies sit around more than a day b/c they dry out faster than cakes do. I never put cuppies in the fridge--covered (preferably airtight) container at room temp seems to work best.
