Yes, I do that sometimes. You have to be careful because once the cake defrosts the moisture will make the fondant sticky. If you let the fondant covered cake sit out for a little while though it will dry back out.

Hello Kansas City! Are you MO or KS? icon_confused.gif

I think it may depend on what type of fondant you are using. MMF or Satin Ice or ... Wilton (blech) icon_twisted.gif To be safe you may just want to go ahead & let your cake return to room temp b4 covering it.

i agree to let the cake come to room temp first because i covered my frozen cake in fondant when i first started out and the moisture made the cake sweat and got real sticky

i crumbcaot and flash freeze for about 6 minutes but do not freeze the cake. overchilling causes too much condensation for me.
