Hi! I'm new to cake decorating and to CC. I will be making my first MMF fondant covered tiered cake for my GD B-day this weekend. I am wondering if I should cover the cake in fondant on Friday? And if so how should I store the MMF covered cake til Saturday when i plan on decorating it? Or should I cover the cake Saturday morning, then decorate? I am also concerned about how hard will the MMF get when we cut into it on Saturday. Any Tips and/or suggestions?

You should be just fine covering the day before decorating.

I have covered them a day before and never had a hardening problem with the MMF. I keep it in a cake box though. If you are going to do this I would keep the tiers covered and assemble the day of the event.

in my expereince MMF doesn't get hard (at least it hasn't for me yet). I've left my completed cakes out for hours and the fondant is still soft. You should cover it when possible for freshness of course. If you let the cakes sit overnight with the fondant on you can then smooth out any bumps from the frosting the seeps out the sides.

I did a cake with MMF the night before the party and the next day it was perfectly fine.
