Bake the 27th - decorate 28th.

Depends on the type of cake. If you like mud cakes, you can bake it prefereably a week ahead, and it will taste better when it comes to decorating it.

Sponge cake - same day.

Buttercake - day before.

Then you can always add things like syrups and moist fillings to help with the mouthfeel when a cake is a bit more mature.
