If you don't like freezing, it isn't necessary. The cakes will be fine in your containers or wrapped well until you can get them iced. (If you're icing them shortly after they're cooled, wrapping isn't necessary... there's enough "crust" on them to prevent them from drying out.) Once iced, the air can't get to the cakes to dry them out.

I'd decorate tomorrow, instead of waiting until Saturday... just in case something goes wrong and you run out of time.

I freeze all my cakes, even if just for one night.

After baking I let them cool and then wrap them well with plastic wrap. I will pull them from the freezer and let them thaw while still wrapped until they are at room temp.

I've never had them dry out in the freezer and the best part is that after freezing and thawing they don't crumb as much. This is especially good with the chocolate cakes!
