Just wondering..i just starting mixing tylose into my fondant recently to make bows etc.. for my cake. If i wanted..would it be safe to put the cake in the fridge with the accents on it. Its iced in buttercream?? Or would they break down? Sweat? colors bld? The cake would have to be out of box since it's so large. I would much rather refrig so it's good and cold for transport tomorrow but not at risking the elements of the cake..What do you think?
Leave in cool place or put in fridge?

I would not put larger delicate decorations in the fridge - like bows with loops standing up or lilies with large leafs. They will get soft and flatten or break, and it's a pain. The last wedding cake in my photos, was put in the fridge. The swan wings got soft on me, and I had to dry them upside down to save them. The roses, daisies and the teddybear were fine.

Thanks Gefion...i wasn't sure how tylose held up refrigerated..good to know. I'll leave the cakes out of the fridge in those cases.
