I am making a cake next weekend for a baby shower. The person I am making the cake for always said in the afternoon. Today she bring the invitation in to work and it is at 11 am. I was going to decorate the cake the day of the shower but now I am not sure. I do not want to be rushed so should I decorate it the night before and all I have to do is the delivery in the morning?

Definitely. I always make sure my cakes are finished, or mostly finished, the night before. I don't like last minute surprises and waiting til the last minute is sure to summon those surprises. icon_smile.gif

I usually make the cake two days before, night before I decorate, deliver the following. But it also depends on how big and number of cakes. More cakes....i bake sooner.

Me too! I always try to finish the night before the cake is due just in case there is a disaster! It minimizes my stress level. Also, I'm a night owl, so I'd much rather stay up 'til 3 a.m. than get up at 3 a.m.!

I usually bake wed or thur for a sat cake, crumb coat and frost the next day, decorate the night before.
