I have someone that wants me to do a wedding cake for her. The only problem is that I will be out of town the Monday through Friday before. Is it possible to go ahead and cover the tiers with fondant and put it in the freezer before I go? Any tips or suggestions?

I do it all the time. Just make sure you wrap it well (I use Glad seal n' wrap - it's the best). And put it in a cake container or in plastic bags. Push as much air out as possible. Some people put it in a cake box when its wrapped as well. When you take it out of the freezer, let it thaw in the wrappings for a couple of hours, then take off the wrapping so the condensation comes off with the wrapping and then lt it dry until its no longer tacky to the touch. If you want to decorate with RI or paint or anything, do it then...Good luck!

Thanks for your tips! I think I am going to give it a try. The cake is for a friend and I really want to be able to make it!
