I'm attempting a fondant covered cake for DD1's birthday and want to allow myself as much time as possible to complete it. I'm using a Cake Art mud cake mix and was wondering how fqr in advance I can bake it without it going dry/yucky.
Her party is on a Sunday night so was hoping to bake Wednesday late arvo/evening, leave to cool overnight, ganache Thursday, Fondant Friday (or Thursday if possible). This will allow me an extra day on Saturday in case I have any problems and leave me free on her actual birthday to spend the day with her and not getting stressed out over the cake.
Is it too early to bake Wednesday? I don't really want to bake and freeze in advance as Ibdon't have much freezer room. Any other tips?
