Does anyone know if it's okay to freeze a cake - for up to a week - that is decorated with MMF? I need to do a circus-themed big top cake and the party date has changed to a date that I will be out of town. Wondering if I can decorate it early and then freeze or even refrigerate the cake for likely 3-4 days. Please help!!

Yes you can, just make sure you bring it out to thaw or come to room temp so it will do all the sweating and drying before you deliver. Oh, and whatever you do, make sure not to touch it until it stops looking shiny which is when your fondant will be dry.

I'm excited to hear that MMF can be frozen! I do charity baking for a shelter and need to supply two large cakes each month. They LOVE fondant cakes. When I can't be there, I thought I'd make the cakes ahead of time and freeze them, but I was assuming that they'd have to be buttercream.

So with fondant... wrap and freeze... or freeze and then wrap? And then open up and let cake sit at room temp until the fondant is completely dry... right?

Any thoughts on how long this might take for a two tiered cake or a 12" layer cake?

Thanks so much for the post and the advice!
