I have a bride (wedding in Oct) who would like me to do cakes for her bridal shower. I would be making bride doll cake on top of 12" round and 7 bridesmaid doll dresses. The problem is her shower is on a Sunday and I am leaving for vacation on the Friday which means I would have to decorate wed. and thurs. and have her pick up early Friday am. The cakes will be covered in fondant but they would be sitting out for 3 days before the shower. Will they be ok or should I just tell her I can't do it?

They should be fine! But I would give the bride the info and let her make the call. Some people are REALLY picky about the freshness of their cake...

I wish I could help you out with an answer for that but unfortunately I can't. But I do have a questioni for you - my cousin's bridal party wants me to make exactly what you are making for her bridal shower and I'm not sure how to go about it. Do you have directions? I bought the mini wonder mold for the bridesmaid dresses.

Personally, I think you should just do a sample SOMETHING of your cake...let it sit out, and then taste it. See what you think. What might work for one, might not for another. Depends on the cake...ect...
