Freeze them, but be sure to wrap them really well.

i have never frozen a cake do you then have to defrost it before you decorate?

I freeze everything I bake. Usually a week before. I pull the out, fill, assemble and re-wrap and let come to room temp overnight. Then trim, ice and decorate. My customers rave over how moist they are. Just be sure they are wrapped well. I know a lot of people wrap in plastic wrap and foil. I use two layers of plastic wrap and then re-use it after I fill them. No problems with drying out.
