I have a cake for Sunday that ordered chocolate pudding as a filling. Do I need to put the cake in the refridge??? I thought I read somewhere that if its not made with milk (like if I used those snack packs or something) than no.

Thanks for your help!

Sorry, snack packs need to be refrigerated upon opening, so your cake should be too. If you have a cake shop nearby, the sleeve choc. bavarian cream is shelf stable.

The #1 ingredient in Hunt's pudding cups is non-fat milk:


Like canned milk, once opened, aseptically packaged puddings which contain milk must be refrigerated.

More than you ever wanted to know about aseptic packing:

It does!
Thank you for letting me know!

Now, I am going to have a cross cake covered in fondant on top of a base cake covered in buttercream. Can I put the whole thing in the fridge? Doesn't the cold make the fondant funky?? Thanks!

Your cake will be fine in the fridge. When it comes out, it may look like it has a little condensation. Don't touch it and it will reabsorb.
