I'd suggest to bake your cakes ahead and freeze them.. then thaw before you are due to decorate them...

I get back aches when I have to lean over the cake so much doing a lot of decorating.. mine is mainly between the shoulder blades.. probably tension from stress!! lol

I did 4 decorated cakes all due for the same day before.. I didn't know about the bake/freeze ahead of time thing... so I did them all that night AFTER I got home from work.. to say the least, I did not go to bed .. stayed up around the clock, showered, got dressed, loaded up all the cakes and went to work to deliver them to co-workers ... all that for $75 (was all small cakes) ... the things we do to make these cakes just right and get them there on time and people never realize what goes into these cakes *sigh*

i usually focus on one at a time.........if i think about them all i get crazy........last month was bad ... for me ...some weeks 3-4 cakes to do.... and I always baked ahead of time, mixed my colors in my icings ahead and just decorated on that day.....

My suggestion would be to do every little thing possible ahead of time. Cakes baked and frozen, icings made and colored, boxes put together. I had to decorate 12 cakes yesterday and I thought I was gonna loose my mind even though I had everything ready!! One thing I like to do also is print out a copy of the picture of the cake and give it to my customer..of course, I put label on the back of the photo with my name and number (free advertising!!) thumbs_up.gif , so I can't really do that kind of thing until cakes are finished!
