Okay, So I need to make an organ that is edible, and I have been assigned the heart, I decided since I couldn't think of any ideas, to make it a cake. It's not due until Halloween, but since I have had little experience I have decided to start doing it now, mostly just to practice and make the real one next weekend. Luckily the one I made now is okay looking, its actually made like how cake balls/pops are made (I decided to make the heart a little bigger than what a real human heart should be, and then make cake pops for the whole class (though this I am gonna definitely do next weekend)) and then instead of using chocolate melts I used fondant.

Anyways my question is, would the cake be too old if I turned it in, in like 10 days? Would I have to make another one?

AND If I (and most likely will) make another one could I start making it (along with the cake pops) 3-4 earlier?? Because I really don't want to do ALL a day prior...

I'm brand new at this whole making cake thing (I'm 16) but I have always wanted to try to bake and decorate a cake anyways (I always love and admire watching those baking shows on TV) so I'm actually kinda happy for the assignment...

Why don't you wrap the cake well and freeze it, 10 days sitting out would be too long if they are going to eat it.
