Box cake. Wrap box in 2 layers of saran wrap, 1 layer of foil. Put wrapped box in garbage bag. Place in freezer.

24 hrs. before serving, place completely boxed & wrapped cake in refrigerator. Several hours before serving, place boxed & wrapped cake on counter to come to room temp. Immediately before display & serving, remove cake from wrapping & box. Eat cake.

You want to make and decorate the cake three weeks before it's needed.

The only method to keep a cake fresh that long is by freezing it.

BlakesCakes describes how it's done (includes photos):
