When is the best time to put fondant on a cake, when it's room temp or frozen? For me, it's easier when it's frozen...but as the cake sits, the fondant looks wet & it's sticky!!!! icon_cry.gif What about you guys, what do you do???

I do it room temp...a thin layer of BC and I go from there.

Definitely at room temp. I think it is getting sticky because as it is cooling, the condensation is gathering at the edges, right where your fondant is. HTH.

Yes, putting it on frozen cake is a very bad idea! Now, how can i thaw a cake out quickly? I only have 2 hrs to finish this cake!

Frozen is a BAD idea, as everyone has said. I have no idea for a "quick thaw", though. I do my cakes at room temperature, with a thin crumb coating of buttercream. I let the BC sit for an hour or so to crust over and firm up before putting the fondant on. Good luck!
