I am fairly new to this and will be making a stacked wedding cake in two weeks.
They will be fondant covered cakes with a layer of buttercream filling.
I have no problem withthe construction but on with the storage.
Does anyone have a suggestion on how to best store this type of cake before the wedding? I will be assembling it on Friday for a 6pm wedding on Saturday.
I have seem many answers but they are never the same and I am a bit confused.
Some say the cake must be kept in the refrigerator because of the buttercream. Others say a fondant covered cake cannot be kept int he refirgerator becaust it will absorb the moisture. Help!! what would be the best way to do this?
Thanks in advance!!!!

Buttercream made with milk can sit out. Buttercream made with cream has to be kept in the fridge.

Personally, I don't refrigerate fondant-covered cakes, and I always make them the day before I need them. Just be sure it's not too warm or humid where you're keeping the cake.
