Afternoon tea and party night before GTT

I am due to have the glucose tolerance test on Friday morning at 9am. However the day before I will be going for afternoon tea and a party in the evening for a family members birthday, so basically eating a lot of cake! Do you think this will affect the GTT result, even if I fast for the 12 hours before?

I've already postponed the test twice (once due to illness, second for holiday) so don't think I can postpone again plus we are going away for 2 weeks from next week so by then I would be 29 weeks.

Any thoughts appreciated.

I wouldn't postpone if you can avoid, but the letter I had said eat your normal diet for 3 days prior. Maybe try to not go too mad on the cake?
