I'm making a cake covered in fondant but the filling is a mousse. Can I refrigerate a cake covered in fondant?

Hey,
I refrigerate fondant covered cakes, uncovered, without any problems. I have a "cake refrigerator" that only has baking stuff in it so that the cake won't pick up any odd odors/tastes from other foods.
HTH,

I think the problem comes in if you try to freeze fondant...... You should be fine...

I've put mine in the frig before and the only problem is that they have a problem of sweating. I live in hot and humid fl though

This is exactly my set-up..."Cake Refigerator" with nothing else in it, uncovered and I never have a problem at all. I do it all the time! You should be fine. You can even use a new clean kitchen sized trashbag if you want to cover it in the regular refrigerator to keep odors out. You will be fine!! Good luck
