I worked for a bakery in Chicago and they had us refridgerate all of the wedding cakes. We never had a problem with the fondant. They would sweat some, but it didn't hurt anything. Hope this helps.

There was a thread on here, just last week I think, about fondant in the fridge. From what I can remember - the arguments centered on 1) It depends on what type of fondant you use and 2) what kind of fridge you use.
If you already know that your fondant doesn't do well in your fridge - I'd be afraid to chance it. I'll see if I can find the thread before someone else does...

Well, this isn't the one I was thinking of but this may help:

OK, I'm sorry - I don't understand how to make it a clickable link.
And I saw that you didn't say your fondant doesn't do well in the fridge - so maybe you could do a little test.


OR - some one who knows more and is less scatterbrained than I will help! icon_redface.gif
