How far in advance can I make a sponge cake?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello,

I've got a cake to make for Saturday however, I've been put back on shifts at work and they've put me on the late shift. This means I only have a couple of hours to spare in the morning before I have to go to work. Now, this cake is a rather large cake and I've got to decorate it with fondant. I normally have problems with fondant to and I want Friday to do this. I have also managed to get a day shift on Friday because I have plans in the evening. How early can I make the sponge cake so it doesn't go bad?!

Thanks :)

i am a working mom so when i plan to make a cake i have a very small window of time to bake and decorate

and usually our events are one saturdays too

so what i do is:

i prepare and buy all the thing i need on monday

make fondant on tuesday (MMF)

bake on Wednesday

frosting on thursday

torting and filling on friday

decorating on saturday

 

never had a problem with this schedule

 

if you want you can bake and freeze the cake month a head

 

good luck

Thats a really good plan.. Only problem is I'm leaving my house at 8am on the Saturday as we've got to be at the hotel by 10am so I don't have any time to do anything Saturday. I can prob bake and do the filling on wednesday as I bake in the morning and i can stick the filling in when I get home from work I guess.
