If it's only a day or two before- go with 500gms butter, 1 kg icing sugar. If you need it to be a little more stable go with halving the butter and add vegetable shortening instead- like kremelta. Personally I like the whole butter one myself. What's really nice too is cherry liquor, and real merachino cherries layered alternatively- black forrest gateux- ohhhhh, my fave! (if it's choc cake! )
