I'm sure this has been posted, but I can't find it. I have a cake due tomorrow and need to fill it with cream cheese frosting and then cover it with fondant. Will it still be good until tomorrow out, or do I need to put it in the fridge? If so, would that be bad for the fondant.

And...anyone reading this, are you having troubles dowloading pictures or is it just me?

Thanks for any suggestions!

well, you have a couple choices. if your cream cheese icing is not shelf stable and needs to be refrigerated, then you are fine to cover with fondant, put in the fridge (i have done it a few times without issue)

if your cream cheese icing does not require refrigeration, then it is fine to sit out overnight, the fondant will keep your keep nice and moist and yummy!

If you're unsure that your cream cheese frosting is shelf stable - refrigerate. icon_smile.gif

I have the exact same issue - cream cheese filling in fondant covered cake. How do you know if your cream cheese filling is shelf stable and is there a recipe for shelf stable cream cheese filling?

Yes, there are shelf stable cream cheese recipes.

And how do you know if your recipe is? (You can't unless you have it analyzed by a food scientist.)
