I have to decorate a wedding cake for nephew in May. It will be a red velvet cake with fondant icing. I'll need to make it on Wednesday or Thursday for a Saturday wedding. Will it stay fresh enough or will it dry out in that length of time? Should I freeze it?? Help... Thanks

I always bake mine on Thursday for Saturday orders and never have a problem. I take them out of the pan, then let them cool until they are no longer hot to the touch then wrap them in plastic wrap and make sure there is no way air can get in to them, then store them someplace cool. This time of year I put them in my garage. I have found that wraping them while still slightly warm and letting them sit for to cool actually makes them more moist.

The fondant will help the cake stay moist. It's fine to bake Wed or Thurs for a Sat wedding.

I was wondering the same thing...
I have a cake for 150 people to do in august. I plan to bake them on Wednesday and Thursday, wrap and put them in my fridge. Then Thursday night and Friday I would ice them and apply my fondant and decorations. Do you think that should be ok?

Yes Sungirl1985, I would say that would work just fine.
