You should refrigerate cream cheese products.

The cake is in the fridge now, my concerns are for the fondant and condensation....

I mean that's why you have to be real careful and test your products before you accept an order to do mutually exclusive components like a refrigerated filling with a possibly melty duo like royal on fondant.

It all depends on your humidity inside and outside your frige. Are you gonna box your cake? That helps a bit. If you can box it before you chill it even better.

Unless the fondant and royal are the same color, you're gonna have some issues. The cake needs to be refrigerated because of the cream cheese. As the fondant comes up to room temp, it will sweat and that will break down the royal. This woud have been a great time to use the Cheesecake flavor Lorann oil in the filling.

I refrigerate mine and haven't run into any problems doing that. Maybe you could put a fan lightly blowing on the cake so that any sweating would evaporate faster icon_rolleyes.gif

Thanks everybody!
The cake is going to be Wedgwood Blue, with white royal icing stencils.....
Any suggestions on how to procede? Will the fondant sweat a lot? Can I prevent it , somehow?
I heard about carboard boxes that help.

The fondant will be fine but you may have some issues with the royal because if it's very warm when you take the cake out it will sweat.

is there any way that you can just go ahead and cover it today and refrigerate and then do the RI piping tomorrow after you take it out?

Maybe it is the best thing! I have lunch at my house at 1pm , and the cake will be served around 2.30. How long can the cake be outside the fridge?
I do not really know how to plan my schedule for the party! ( setting the table, decorating the cake, getting dressed...) .I was hoping to decorate the cake today and just relax tomorrow!
