Of course it's "safe" to bake and decorate without freezing! Freezing is an extra step some bakers take to add moisture. I've never bothered freezing my cakes, I use Serious_Cake's recipe for most flavors and it's nice and moist without the freezer. A cake will stay fresh for a lot longer than you'd think. just don't refrigerate because that will dry it out. I keep cakes in a cake carrier locked, and that seals off air and such. Don't bother trying to freeze fondant, I don't think anyone has had luck with that. HTH
