I have a customer who wants me to freeze a cake for her because I can't do it on the week that she needs it. Can a decorated cake be frozen and still taste okay? TIA

Yes it will taste o.k.   It does depend on what you use for filling and what icing you use (fondant/ABC or?)

Be sure the customer knows there could be problems w/some colors bleeding :(  Be sure to put the cake in a cake box, then wrap that in a plastic bag.  Tell customer to defrost by putting into refrig overnight, then to counter several hours before wanting to serve.  If it is defrosted & brought to room temp still wrapped there probably won't be any problems but you can't gaurentee it.  It shouldn't sweat if defrosted as described as long as it remains wrapped up.
