I have never done that before, I usually bake and freeze my cakes so I do not get bombarded with the baking and decorating steps but I would have to advise against, although Sara Lee does it and they are ok once thawed but they aren't covering their cakes with fondant. If you do it I would make sure that the cake is thawed first. Good Luck

I agree, I'd make sure the cake was thawed before icing and covering, you don't want to run into any condensation or anything.

You can absolutely freeze a cake covered in buttercream. Freeze it for a little while before wrapping it in saran wrap and tin foil. The night before I wanted to decorate the cake, I took off the saran wrap and foil and let it thaw completely in the fridge. I had no trouble decorating it and it tasted very fresh.
