I am going to be making my first wedding cakes beginning in May. Could anyone help me out with a timeline of when to bake, store the cake until crumbcoated, when to apply fondant, decorate, etc???

I will be making a 4 tiered cake, square, covered in fondant, and then cover part of it with fondant flowers cut from my Cricut Cake Machine.

Here's my timeline:

Thursday morning: bake

Thursday evening: torte, fill & crumbcoat

Friday: cover in fondant, stack & decorate

Saturday: deliver

Good luck!

During the different days, where do you store? Once cakes are baked and crumbcoated, do you chill or freeze? And once the cake is complete, can it sit at room temp on the counter until delivery or do you chill?
