I am making a castle cake for my daughter.The party is on Saturday and I would like to get it done as far in advance as possible. I've looked around online for ideas and I would like to cover ice cream cones in fondant for the towers. How far in advance would I be able to do this? I've also read that I shouldnt refrigerate the cake after it has the fondant on it. If I do the cones in advance should they not be refrigerated either? I'll be making my own MMF.

I would cover the cones now, why not! that way they have a chance to dry. I wouldnt put the cones in the fridge just leave them out to dry. Once you buttercream your cake and then cover with MMf it will seal in the moistness. At least mine do. I have a cake due on Saturday and I already have them made, torted and filled in the freezer. I will buttercream them tonight, put them in the fridge, then cover with MMf tomorrow. I need Thursday and Friday to attach gumpaste and fondant pieces. Good luck.
