I have a dilema, I am making real cream cheese filling and covering the cake with fondant should I put it in the fridge over night or what? I have never run across this. What will happen to the fondant if it put in the fridge? What will happen to the cream cheese under the fondant will it stay fresh?
THANKS EVERYONE.

Hi Evone,
I don't do fondant covered cakes myself ( yet...) but I know many other decorators here in AZ that do and they've put their cakes in the fridge with no problems at all. I make fondant figures and accent pieces to go on my buttercream frosted cakes and stick them in the fridge overnight and never had a problem.

Hope that helps!

Yes, you can refrigerate fondant-covered cakes. It will be fine and everything will be fresh.

If you do a search on "refrigerating fondant" you will yield many threads on this subject.

You definitely want to refrigerate cream cheese filling. Many people on these boards have refrigerated their fondant cakes. Good luck!

Well... I put the fondant covered cake in the fridge and it came out very goopy. It was in the shape of a diaper bag and we had to replace a pouch as it was just to saggy and mushy. My thought is don't put in cream cheese or anything that can spoil so you never have to refridgerate the fondant covered cake... lol not good.. Thanks everyone for trying my bad for using perishable stufficon_sad.gif

I pretty much only work in fondant and all of my cakes get refrigerated without problems

Not everyone's frig has the same humidity level. Some can be really damp. I'll bet that's what caused the problem.
