I made a cake for a friend's baby shower that was scheduled for this past Saturday, but was cancelled at the last minute due to snow

If the link doesn't work, it's in my album and the cake is "Cute As A Button"
I too, am interested in knowing what other's opinion/experience is on this. I had a similar situation this weekend...My niece asked me to make a cake for her best friend's birthday but when I called her to ask when she was picking it up (after it was completely finished) she said, "it's for NEXT Friday Aunt K!" Okay, well, I had her text she sent me about when she wanted it and she got the date completely wrong. So.....because I was doing it with no charge to her and it was her mistake I told her she would just have to freeze it or have b-day cake early because next week is booked solid for me. I put it in the box, sealed every opening with tape and put it in the freezer. It's buttercream covered with fondant decorations. I'm a little concerned that the red and black will "bleed", but at this point, I really can't do anything about it.
So, just curious to know of prior experience.
Box completed, room temp cake. Wrap box in 2 layers of saran wrap, 1 layer of foil. Freeze.
24 hrs. before serving, place still wrapped box in refrigerator.
If cake is very large, place on counter at least 6 hrs. before serving==STILL BOXED & WRAPPED.
Once cake comes to room temp, unwrap, display, serve.
Done with these cakes. No dripping or running. Client said it was perfect.
I agree with blakescakes, I too have had to stick in freezer due to client changing date. I just wrap in saran wrap, put in the fridge to slowly thaw the day before needing it...I find it doesn't sweat as much...it really does work great!
