I have a baby shower that I need to make a cake for next weekend that will be a fairly good sized cake. I would like to bake the cakes and freeze them in advance. But I need to cover with fondant and haven't ever covered a cake with it before. My question is.. is the fondant going to be okay if the cake is frozen and I ice it with it. Will the defrosting cake mess up the fondant in any way?? Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

Don't cover a frozen cake with fondant. The moisture will give you problems. Let the cake thaw first and then cover. This goes for buttercream as well.

I have frosted a frozen cake with buttercream with no problems before, but wasn't sure about the fondant. Thanks for the warning.

I frost frozen cakes will buttercream regularly and haven't had any trouble. By the time I'm done frosting though, the cakes are thawed so I don't know about the fondant part. Good luck!!!

Ditto, don't try putting the fondant on until the cake has thawed completely. I tried this once as an experiment to see what would happen.......my cake looked great at first & then as the cake thawed underneath the fondant, it became a sticky mess.
