Can I freeze a fondant-covered cake?

For what it is worth, Kerry Vincent freezes fondant covered cakes.  I remember her discussion of this on another food-related chat site.  She wraps the covered cake, places it in a box, wraps the box several times and then into the freezer. 

I’ve never tried this so I cannot vouch for how it works.  A lot will depend on the environment -  how humid your refrigerator is, how close to temp your freezer stays…. and whether you are using home made fondant or a commercially prepared one.

The longest I’ve kept a fondant covered cake in the cooler is two days.  My walk in is humid, and unless the cake is in a heavy duty bag (sheet pan size bags are available to the trade and probably from online paper sources I would guess), the cake will sweat before the day is out.  The bag protects that from happening on the cake.

Your mileage will vary.  I would definitely suggest testing it out with a small 6” cake to see what happens.

Thanks Hector. That makes sense.
