If you know you’ll be freezing fondant, the first thing you should do is to make sure you won’t put elaborate designs on it. The fondant will definitely gather moisture around it, so it might droop if you put too much coloring. If you know for sure that you’ll be freezing it, stick to a basic cake instead. First off, when you freeze fondant, you will definitely need the cake to be ready. You’ll need to put the fondant on the cake already and freeze the entire thing.
