I often make more MM fondant than I need, and freeze what's left. Of course I double wrap it in plastic and keep it in an airtight container with a lid. When I need it for the next cake I simply let it warm to room temperature before kneading it to make it pliable again. If the MMF is a little hard, I microwave it for about 5-10 seconds on half power and VOILA...it's soft and pliable.

No need to freeze, you can keep MMF for a couple months in the pantry. I make fairly large quantities. I use Rhonda's MMF and don't use fresh lemon juice (realemon instead) and it's fine in the pantry.

PS: Forgot to mention that I freeze fondant covered cakes all the time for 6-8 wks. I put them in a cake box or plastic container and then wrap 2 garbage bags over top of the box or container, pushing as much air out as possible. When I take them out, I let them come to room temp in the wrappings. Then let it air dry for 1-2 hours, depending on humidity in your area. It is tacky to the touch at first but dries. Then you can decorate with edible images, RI or paint. No one would ever know it was frozen...

6-8 weeks is my max, but not my ideal..but it's fine as long as it's wrapped well. I also use a super moist cake - WASC is very good for freezing for long periods. Sorry, I can't give you an experienced answer with the 2nd part - I've never used fruit jam or made a topsy turvy. BUT I don't see it being a problem....I torte my cakes BEFORE carving or I end up carving off the dam. I think as long as you have a damn, you're okay...Best to torte, carve, then fill from my experience. Good luck!
