Before I started freezing my cakes, I would always bake on wednesday, level, fill, and crumb ice on thursday, and decorate on friday. So the cakes were baked 3 days ahead, and they were always really good. Now that I freeze my cakes, I bake them a week ahead and freeze. I take them out on wednesday night, and let them thaw, and work on them the next day. I usually don't put the fondant on until the day before the wedding, but I don't see why you couldn't. Maybe someone else with more experience with fondant will help you out.

hi cathyscakes.. thank u very for the input.. really a great help.. i'm confident about the fondant my concern is the cake inside..i guess there's no way for it to spoil if we freeze it then decorate it 2 days before...yep freezing the cakes really helps..

As a test, I left a fondant covered cake on my kitchen table for 7 days, and when I cut into it, it seemed slightly drier than normal, but other than that, I didn't see any sign of deterioration whatsoever. I wasn't brave enough to taste it, but my husband did, and said he would not have known it wasn't a freshly made cake. I think the fondant covering keeps the moisture in.
