If you are making your own cake definitely make it at least a day before. You want to make sure it is cooled completely before you start icing the cake. When icing the cake try to do a thin prep layer and then cool it again. Get all your icing colors prepared organize your design and then you are ready for your cake. On your cake consider making small indents with an icing knife to have a guideline to follow. Remember above all else that everyone is going to love your effort to making the cake. Have fun with it and enjoy eating it. That is the best part.
