Generally speaking, cakes are in my cooking comfort zone. But I'm going to attempt a princess cake for a friend's birthday this Saturday. I'm fully expecting it to be a lot of work, and I'm a little daunted by the marzipan, but I think I'm up for the challenge. My question is, how much of this can I make in advance? I'll have all day Saturday to work on it, but I'd rather break it up and prepare some of it over the previous evening or two, if possible. Any thoughts or suggestions?
I'll probably use this recipe, or something very similar:
Thanks in advance!
