Does a fondant cake gets ruined if you put it in the fridge? how long can you leave a cake un-refrigerated?
I made a vanilla cake last night and covered with fondant. I will finish decorating it tonight, but the cake is due tomorrow afternoon. So, now I'm concern thinking I should had put it in the fridge icon_confused.gif

I work full time during the day so, I can only do my 'hobby' in the evenings icon_smile.gif

Dont refrigerate it. It will be fine. IF you will refrigerate it the fondant will get really tough.

Putting it in the fridge causes condensation to form, and then watermarks. Always a bad thing! Some people have done it, but I won't even try it.

Ahhh, thank you, thank you, thank you I am, at work, stressing over leaving the cake out all day icon_redface.gif is for my brother's b-day, I made him a especial casino cake and I want to surprise him.
I will bring my cake here to show all of you.

I'm not a professional baker and, it's my 2nd time experimenting with fondant so, thank you very much again!!

Don't worry about your cake. It will be fine sitting out untitl you can finish it. Fondant cakes can sit for a few days.

I have refrigerated a fondant/bc cake in the past and had good luck with hit. It is fine to put fondant in the fridge as long as you DO NOT try to wipe away condensation. It will evaporate if you let it sit for a while on its own.

I use Michele Foster's recipe from this site and it can be refrigerated. I usually turn up my refrigerator temperature just a little but have had zero problems refrigerating it. It doesn't sweat or anything.

I use Satin Ice and every cake I've done has been in the fridge overnight, and every one has been perfectly fine.
