You could freeze these til you are ready or keep in fridge for the next day. 

I then cut each cake into two after being in fridge over night so would have 4 even layers which I used a caramel cream and juice reduction between each layer and on top decorated with more cream piped and edible flowers and leaves.

Flowers and leaves I used were Nutmeg Geranium, Lemon Verbena, Nasturtium, garlic flowers.
