your fondant might get wet & sticky from condensation over time as the cake thaws out. I learned the hard way - even though I let my rock hard/frozen cakes thaw for a couple hours (forgot to take them out before going to my full time job).  

I covered them with fondant before going to bed - by morning they were very wet/sticky. I didnt have much time left so i patted it down with a cornstarch/p.sugar puff to help dry it out.  My frozen cakes were torted & dirty iced prior to freezing - maybe this made a difference??


I did go thru the forum later on and read not to do it as well.

hope i helped ya
