    Well it could have been that the fondant was old or expired because when fondant expires it has a funny taste to it. This time, you might think about timing. Timing is key. You should maybe bake the cake 2 days prior but decorate it the next day perhaps you can frost it after the cake cools the 1st day, then let the frosting sit for a day and put the fondant on :) Let me know how it all works out! I hope everything works well :D

    GOOD LUCK!

    Next time, don't put the cake in the fridge. It could have made the fondant cool, and then eventually harden. So, you can leave the cake out as long as it's covered. :)

    well first of all, it is NOT recommended to put a cake covered with fondant in the fridge. that could have caused it 2 be hard.
