Timing - what to make ahead?

burbankfoodie | Mar 24, 2008 10:27 AM

Hi.. My boys' birthday party is Sunday AM at 10:30. I was thinking of making their b'day cake myself and also had the following menu planned (listing only things that take some prep) - mini frittatas/mini quiches (in mini muffin pans), mini muffins, fresh fruit (strawberries and oranges). Question is, on the birthday cake, can I make that Saturday? And if so, do I make the cake but wait to frost until Sun or do I make the whole thing? (also, after making, refrigerate or not?) Also, on the food items, any suggestions as to which (or if all) could be done the day prior? I know Sunday AM will be rather rushed but still want the food to be good and taste fresh. Thanks...
