I made a buttercream baby shower cake with fondant accents. There are fondant blocks and stripes. Now it seems the cake has to be frozen and not served until Saturday. How do I thaw it out so that the fondant stays okay? I have heard it is not good to freeze fondant, but I just don't have the heart to leave this thing out until Saturday. I actually got the idea for this cake from the forum so I know many of you use the fondant accents. If you have frozen your cake please let me know the outcome. TIA

Fondant freezes fine. the risk is from condensation when you take the cake out. It can soften the fondant. however, if the room is cool, the risk is minimal. Also, if it can be stored in a airtight container, then thawed in the fridge, th condensation will form on the outside of the container, not on the cake.
