This is my question guys.................
Once I cover my 3D cake w/fondant, should I refrigerate it or not? will it dry the fondant out? Anyone know?
I have always been told not to refrigerate, due to condensation. However, the new chocolate fondants I order, CAN be refrigerated.
To me that depends on how long you are going to leave it out and what kind of filling it has, if any. If you have a filling such as a custard filling or whipping cream filling, then i would not leave it out for more than I need to. But if you have a filling such as Guave that I make, then I'm comfortable leaving it out over night.
Google storage of a fondant cake.
I have done both and preferred it from the fridge as the fondant was a bit firmer but I take it out about an hour before serving. The cake I did not put in the fridge was fine but the fondant was a little softer. I don't notice much difference between either way really and think it's just personal preference with me anyway! And space!
I didn't read all this but I refrigerated a Fondant cake last weekend. No problem
How do you store your fondant covered cakes? Plain Cake Box? Plastic Wrap? What's my best bet?
If you have perishable fillings... yes refridgerate. If your using satin ice they say right on their web page that it may be refrigerated or frozen..... Ive dont it.....
I always chill my cakes with or without fondant. Helps them firm a little and makes them more stable for delivery. I ordered Fondarific fondant which states it can be frozen for up to one year.
I always refrigerate and have never had a problem.
