Hi. I'm back with yet another question. Can I fill, frost and freeze a cake, then thaw it and add fondant decorations? If not after frosting it, what about filling and just crumb-coating. Could I freeze that, then thaw, add frosting, and decorate with fondant accents? I won't be covering the cake with fondant, just zebra stripes, polka dots, that sort of thing. Thanks so much for any input.

I have frozen a iced cake before with no problems.

As long as your filling is freezer friendly you shouldn't have any issue.

TexasSugar,
Thanks for your input. After thawing, can I still put fondant and/or gumpaste decorations on it? Didn't know whether condensation on cake might cause a problem for fondant.

just let the cake thaw so that you don't have the condinsation issue.

I'd thaw it completely before I added the fondant.
