When I lived in Everett, my upstairs neighbor did what bakechef does. Only he just decorated the cakes. He always did Poo's cakes for as long as we lived there. That kid was in cake heaven. My neighbor told me about keeping the batter of a lot of baked goods overnight in the fridge. Of course that will only work if you can remember a cake or cookie is due tomorrow and not this afternoon. Telling me you needed something baked for the Boy Scout Bake Sale as you are going out the door, is of no help.
