I made one this weekend and the order was cancelled. I have an order next week for the same flavor. I've had the cake in the fridge since Mon. What do you think?

I have heard of people freezing them, although have not done it myself. From what I understand you would need to put the cake in a cardboard box, seal it up then wrap the entire box well in plastic. When you bring it out of the freezer you need to leave the box wrapped up at room temperature until the cake has had time to completely defrost.

PattyCakes--that is exactly as I have frozen fondant cakes in the past and they come out just fine.

That's pretty much how I do it except I have an in between step where I put it in the fridge (wrapped) for 24hrs. before allowing it to sit on the counter (wrapped) to come to room temp. before serving.

Works like a charm.
