I would probably bake on Thursday and then cover the cake Friday. That way you're not rushing on the day of the party. The fondant will act as a seal and keep the cake moist.

Stacking is not hard, just be sure to cut your dowels to the same length. I don't use a center dowel unless I'm taking the cake somewhere in the car.
