It's Tuesday evening and I am doing my first BC cake with Fondant accents.... I have already made a milk chocolate cake... I'm making a oreo truffle filling... It has cream cheese... I will be decorating it friday and it will be for saturday afteroon with a chocolate BC and fondant accents... I have never made a cake with any other filling besides BC and i have never done fondant accents... So I have 2 questions.

1. Should I put the cake in the refrigerator?

2. If I put it in there will anything happen to the cakes decor?

I hope someone can help me... thanks so much...

Tuesday to Saturday is a long time. Yes, I believe it should be refrigerated.

Add the accents at the last minute. When you remove the cake from the fridge there can be condensation. Allow it to dry, before placing the fondant accents, if you can.

I have refrigerated Satin ice and it comes out well, but if it's wilton, don't even try it, it gets really gooey.

Do not refridgerate the wilton fondant. I had to make a paint can, so it was white with red lettering and it was bleeding all over the place, next time will just use royal what a freaking mess. but it does sound like the filling needs to stay refrigerated.

I too have refrigerated fondant, satin ice, and had no problem. I would definitely refrigerate if your filling has cream cheese.
