    I was wondering how far in advance can/should you make a cake, such as one of the ones Melissa demonstrates (ie. ladybug cake). And when it's made ahead, should it be refrigerated - assuming the cake is just a basic white cake with buttercream frosting and fondant decorations? And what if the whole cake is covered in fondant, should it be refrigerated?

    Thanks!! :-)
