It is always advisable to make the fondant ahead and refrigerate at least overnight and longer is fine. It can also be frozen and thawed when needed. One more thing lest I forget....it tastes a whole lot better than the fondant you buy! The cake layers are much easier to trim to size while frozen and the frosting goes the frozen layers so much more easily.
Friday evening we frosted, decorated, and put all of the finishing touches on the cake and cupcakes and were ready for bed at 11PM when we were finally done. This morning both granddaughters arrived to make the delivery. Poor Katie sat with "big eyes" and the giant cake on her lap as Emily backed her car out of our driveway. Such wonderful girls. I am so proud!
