Im making a cake and cupcakes for this upcoming saturday. I was thinking of starting Thursday and finishing by friday. I don't want to feel rushed, so I want to see when do you bake the cake, make the fillings, buttercream, when do you ice and finish the cake? I know its a lot of questions but any advice will be highly appreciated.
You can bake the cake anythime between now and then. After it has cooled (for the most part) wrap it well in a plastic bag OR cling film and freeze it. Make sure you put it on a flat surface (cookie sheet?) until it is hard or it might warp. You can also make the b'cream now and refrigerate. Don't know what kind of filling you plan on using so can't say when to make that. The cake can be iced and finished Friday for delivery on Sat.
