It's been a very long time since I've decorated with fondant.  I have three cakes due the same day to the same location for the same party.  How far in advance can I cover in fondant? Then do final decorations day before party.

Thank you. They're due on a Sunday, so I thought I'd cover Friday, decorate Saturday and then done.  Thoughts? Figure I'll bake Tuesday and Wednesday.

sounds right -- when i bake early in the week and i always did i filled and assembled the cakes then wrapped them up like a mummy and froze them till i iced & decorated -- i wouldn't want to let them sit out for 6 days till serving -- freezing suspends the staling process and refrigeration speeds it up so i recommend that you freeze them for a few days there --

they sound delicious -- best to you
