I'm making a cake with a pudding (Snack Pack) filling for the first time, this will be a fondant covered cake but here's my dilemma..... I've always heard that you should not refrigerate a fondant covered cake, but what if you have a perishable filling such as pudding....oh and I'm also using bananas with the filling (chocolate pudding with sliced bananas). What should I do?

Also, any tips with using a pudding filling, I'm nervous that it may ooze out!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!

I've put fondant cakes in the fridge and never had a problem. I have also heard this from others. I actually really have no idea why some say you shouldn't since it doesn't effect the fondant at all. There has been a few threads on this before, I say go for the pudding and put it in the fridge. You should have no problem with your cake.

I, too, put my fondant cakes in the fridge because most of my fillings need to be refrigerated. Never had a problem with it. plus, it's better to make sure nothing goes bad for health reasons....better to be safe than sorry (and sick!) Good luck, hth

WHen I do a jelly or pudding filled cake, to stop the oozing, I always pipe a Frosting ring around it. I keeps all the ooze inside and doesn't mess up my fondant. I hope that helps.
