I want to DIY my cake and everyone says I’m crazy, but I’m planning on working on it about a month before.  Here’s my plan.

1 Month before:
Spend Saturday afternoon about a month before the wedding making batter.
Spend Sunday afternoon the next day baking.  I hope to get at least 3 cakes done. and then freeze.

3 Weeks to Go:
The next weekend (3 weeks before wedding) repeat above.
Begin to make the frosting and do the filling and crumb layer of frosting for each tier. Freeze.

2 Weeks to Go:
Take out all the tiers and frost with the real layer of frosting. re-freeze.

Day of:
Carry the cake  boxed up to the location and assemble on a cake stand.  Bottom tier then a wooden mandrel through the center.  Then I’d stack the center tier and top tier on.  I’m just going to put an organic flower on the top and be done with it.  Very rustic and sweet looking.  I’ll hand it over to the location and have them wheel it out and cut it up during the cake cutting.
