Hi, I thought it would be more personal to make my daughters 1st Birthday cake but never make a cake before in my life so feeling a bit nervous about it now. Especially as I now going to have about 25 guests
My oven is not very good and a bit unpredictable so decided to cheat a bit and buy ready made sponges from Woolies and fill and decorate myself using a jam and butter cream filling and then green buttercream icing to cover, piping the top to look like grass and finishing with sugar daisy's and night garden figurines.
My question is how far in advance can I make it. The party is Sunday at Noon so wondering would it be OK if I decorate it on Friday (While my daughter is in daycare) and keep in the fridge or is it best to do it the day/evening before. Worried about waiting until Saturday incase it all goes wrong and I have to go buy one at the last minute but if I make it too early will it dry out in the fridge.
Advice would be greatly appreciated.
