I have recently rented commercial kitchen space. And I have 2 major problems. First, I put my cakes in a stand up commercial refrig. And I get moisture on all of my cakes. I can't use the walk in because it is shared by a catering company with all kind of other foods that have smells. Onions, cheeses etc. So I don't want my cakes to absorb there smells.

We have had repair man look at the refrig. and it is working just like it should. Does any one know why I am getting wet cakes. Any solutions. I have a 6 month lease and I can't use the frig. Any suggestions on what kind of refrig. that won't make my cakes wet?

To make things worse it has been hot here lately (CA). And there isn't air conditioning. So what do I do. Beside get another space as they are easy to come by.

does the moisture come on the cakes while they are in the fridge...or does it come after you take them out?

Moisture is on the cakes after they have been in over night. Boxed or not there is still condensation. Nothing else seems to be effected.

When I arrive the next day there is condensation on the cakes before I take them out.

I have the same problem, I beleive everyone does. Put the cakes in a box prior to placing in the fridge. You may have to invest in some really good boxes, some boxes get really soft after being in the fridge. I get my boxes from Unger. I put all of my cakes in a box, then in the fridge, no problems... no more condensation build-up on the cake. If I don't put them in a box, the cake rains with condensation!!

Thank you, but what about wedding cakes and other tiered cakes that can't be boxed?
