I am doing a cake that is very extensive. I am doing a ship that is very large and the decorating is taking a long time. So I have been putting in the freezer then I frost it for a little bit, then I put it back in so I can keep it firm. How do you avoid condensation? How do you store a cake that will take you a week to make? I noticed as the cake began to thaw is when the condensation started. I carved this cake and I have put a lot of money in it and I don't want to lose it. Any advice? It is too big to put in a box, it just barely fits in the freezer. Would a fan help dry it? How long can a cake sit out without going bad? Hope this is too lengthy. Thanks for any help you can give me asap!

Why are you putting it in the freezer? Hopefully you started with a firm cake and if so it should be fine to deco without putting it in the freezer.
Does it have a filling? If so is it sleeved? if it is then your cake is fine to leave out while you decorate it.

I'd put it in the fridge rather than the freezer.
