I have decided I would make my future husband a replica cake of his 1965 truck that he has restored for our wedding day as a surprise. This might be a little tricky to do but I'm hoping someone on here has some helpful hints and ideas.
If I bake the cake and carve it this weekend (sept 5), cover it in ganache and then freeze it until 1 or 2 days before the wedding, take it out of the freezer and put the finishing touches like fondant and fondant acceories on it, would that work? Or could I make it and decorate it completely this weekend and freeze it? is there a recipe for fondant that freezes ok?

Definitely ....... go for it.
I would not completely decorate it ahead. Fondant does not do well in the fzr. The main reason is when it defrosts the moisture in the cake has no where to go and will cause the cake to be mushy.
that's what I thought, but I thought I had read somewhere that there was a recipe for fondant that freezes ok. I very well could be wrong though.
Thanks for the reply! I figured I would be ok doing it that way but I just wanted another opinion.
SatinIce does advertise that their fondant goes in and out of the freezer just fine. I have not tried it however.
I tried just refrigerating Satin Ice when I did my daughter's wedding cake..... DISASTER!!!!!!! Bubbles everywhere!! I just sat down and cried, I had to refondant 2 tiers twice!!!!! Maybe just my fridge because I know people refrigerate fondant all the time with no problem!
Same thing happened to me with fondarific bc flavored fondant..major air bubble on top of cake after coming out of fridge and back to room temp!
yikes! That is something I don't need 2 days before my wedding. I have carved the cake and put ganache on it and froze it. Im hoping it will be ok. It only has to be in the freezer for 2 weeks and then I can finish decorating it. Thanks everyone!
