I've only carved once and I filled, carved, frosted then put the fondant on. It's easier to carve when they are still a bit frozen. HTH or at least it's a bump for you! icon_smile.gif

I'm doing my 1st carved cake atm, so far I have filled crumb coated and carved and put it all in the fridge. I will cover with buttercream tonight ( a thin layer) and then cover with fondant.

My instructor told me to either partially freeze or let the cakes once filled and crumb coated set up in the fridge.

HTH good luck with it
