I was asked to bake a couple cakes for this weekend, my question is this, both cakes are for saturday but im afraid im going to be rushing if i try to finish them both that day. How long does a decorated cake last before it starts getting bad?? Would it be ok to finish one cake the day before for next day delivery??
How far in advance can i bake the cake??

I always make my cakes ahead of time and they are always fresh. For a saturday cake I would bake on Thurs, decorate on Friday, and deliver on Saturday. The buttercream keeps them fresh. That way you don't have to rush. You could even move everything back one more day and the cake would still be fine, because the buttercream seals in the freshness.

I always have the cake finished and decorated the day before delivery. I never decorate a cake the day it's due in case of "accidents/mishaps". I personally wouldn't decorate any earlier. That's just me...not sure what others do.
