I haven't put fondant covered cakes in freezer or in the fridge, ever. But I have read that some put cakes covered in fondant in the fridge. And after they take the cakes out, and if there is any condensation, they use a hair dryer to dry it.

You might need to cover the cake really well and freeze it and after taking it out, thaw it in the fridge with the wrapping. This is how I do my cakes without any fondant or icing.

Hope you wrapped it goodicon_smile.gif Put if from fzr to frig if possible overnight otherwise you can take directly from fzr to countertop overnight. Do NOT unwrap or open box. Just let it come to room temp for at leaste 4-5 hours. It will depend on the size of the cake. Of course the bigger the cake the longer it takes. A 4" cake w/filling will take longer than a single layer w/o filling etc.
You should not need to use a hair dryer on it if you give it plenty of time to come to room temp. That's all there is to iticon_smile.gif
