I wouldn't bake it that far in advance. Most people bake on wednesday or thursday for a function on saturday. Especially since you are not going to refrigerate it. Just my opinion.

You can bake one week or 1 month in advance IF you freeze the cake layers.
Once they baked layers are cool to the touch (just a bit warm) wrap in plastic wrap and place in a plastic bag to freeze them. When you are ready to work on the cake remove from fzr to frig overnight (or similar time).
Cake can be finished 2 days before date. I wouldn't want to have it done before that as it would mean any leftovers will not keep fresh for customer more than a day or two.
