I'm sure this has been asked but can anyone tell me if a cake decorated with fondant needs to be stored in the fridge after decorating or left out at room te mperature? I'm decorating the cake Saturday for a shower on Sunday and I want it to look the same the next day. Please help!

No need for refrigeration unless you have a filling that requires it. Icing and fondant seals the cake and keeps it fresh.

You don't HAVE to put it in the fridge, but depending on where you live, if the humidity is high, the fondant will sweat. I live in Georgia so, I have about 3 hours before my cake starts to sweat if it's out. Good luck!

I refrigerate more often than not. Even when it's not required. Just keep in mind if you do you will have to let the condensation evaporate before touching the cake, a fan will help speed up the dry time.

I refrigerate everything, without exception
