I'll be making a cake for my cousin and it will be for late June and here in SoCa is very hot, I still don't know if it will be an outdoor wedding or not, but I know the venue it's 45 miles away from where I live.
The cake will be covered in fondant, so I need some cake/fillings combinations that would work fine being outsite the fridge, or could I refrigerate fondant? I could change the fridge settings.
What would be the best way to do this with the less stress possible? I can't just decorate the cake the same day since my DD will be the flower girl, so that will require me to get her ready and on time for the wedding.
I could get up early and work on the cake for a few hours.

Please I need advice from the experts!!

I'm no expert, by any means, but when I saw summer, I thought of lemon or lime curd..........but that would need refrigeration.............
maybe some other lemon/lime citrus-y type fillings???????

It's funny because for some reason I was thinking about lemon cake, I just don't know what filling goes well with it.

I know they have the lemon filling in the pouches that dont require refridgeration... you may want to consider that or just flavor the buttercream lemon.

I didn't know you can flavor buttercream lemon, that would be a good solution, how do I do that?

there is an endless supply of flavorings out there on the internet that you can purchase and flavor buttercream. This works great because buttercream does not need to be refrigerated, so you have the benefit of that plus you can make it taste how you want.
