Hi everyone, I'm making the Mud cake for an important event, and need to know if I can make it one or maybe two days before and keep it moist somehow?Would really appreciate suggestions thanks.

oh brilliant,thanks so much...what icing do you use? I'm thinking of ganache (just before serving)...

i used to work at a restaurant where we kept ours for a month, it was still moist but did taste funny, i think abouta week i would say, you can serve it with hot or cold ganache

My mud cake tastes better on the second/third day - it's like the flavours intensify.

I usually use ganache but cream cheese icing also goes quite well, just depends what you want. :-) You can whip ganache once it's set to make a fluffier icing if you are decorating.
