I have made a few cakes that turned out great. I'm getting ready to make my son's 2nd birthday cake. It's going to be a 3 tier elmo themed cake. fun! I'm trying to remember my preparation and wanted some feedback on what other's do. Here is my plan:

Party Saturday.

Bake cakes, then wrap in plastic and keep on counter

Torte and Fill (filling will be strawberry mouse and 1 layer with chocolate mouse - so I'll make a stiff buttercream dam and fill them). Then I recently read at that point to wrap them in plastic and let them settle in the fridge over night. Last year I think I filled and dirty iced them the night before I decorated them.

Dirty ice and refridgerate for an hour. Then cover with fondant, stack, decorate and refridgerate.

All done for Saturday. Last year I decorated on Saturday and it was a nightmare because it took me all morning. For a christening cake I did, I decorated it and pretty much got it ready to go the night before.

Any tips or suggestions. Any other more experienced best practices you would like to share?
