Hi, I have a dilemma. I am making an anniversary cake for my friend's parents party which is next saturday. I am going on vacation this saturday until next saturday. The scheduling was unavoidable and I am wondering, can I make a satin ice fondant covered cake and store it is a refrigerator for a week or will the cake become dry and the fondant hard? Anyone with experience with this? I would rather not have to leave my vacation early if I dont have to. Thank you so much in advance for all your help!
It would probably be better to freeze the cake rather than refrigerate it. Refrigeration causes starches to crystallize making cakes, breads, etc., stale more quickly. Also, the refrigeration would probably ruin the fondant. The humidity levels in a fridge are quite high and that's murder on fondant.
This is just my opinion. Maybe someone else has a better idea.
