Well this isn't very ASAP but certainly you can frig a cake covered in fondant when it has such a filling.

I refrigerate all of my cake, without exception, and have never had fondant issues because of it.

I put a fondant covered cake in the frig this morning, just took it out a half an hour ago, and it was perfect. I refrig all of my fondant cakes.

This is very interesting info. I was always told not to refrigerate a fondant covered cake so I have never place fresh berries in the cake. I may have to make a small one to give it a try.

Interesting how everyone puts their cakes in the frig, last time I did it wasn't the best experience and I'll do again. So just checking to see if anyone has any ideas. And uuuhhh yeah it was an ASAP because I have a cake due this weekend and it has to be fresh strawberries, but deco is fondant. So I guess it's not going to happen.

Maybe it's the brand of fondant. Who started the no-fridge-fondant rule anyway. I use Satin Ice and had no problems.

I also use Satin Ice, and have had no problems.

Yeah, it's probably because I use mmf. Thanks!
