I cover with fondant?

Usually, I do very small cakes. Next week, I'm doing a larger cake for a friend and need to ice my cakes one night and cover in fondant the next day.

Is it okay to pull them out of the fridge and cover with the fondant? Or should I let them warm up a bit?

I've read bits on here about this before and just can't seem to find where I read it!

Thanks for any help!

The butter cream needs to be tacky in order for the fondant to stick so let it sit a bit or mist it very lightly with water.

You really dont have too...By the time you roll your fondant it usually start to sweat. Is actually better to have hard icing so the weight of the fondant doesnt change the shape of the cake.
If its too dry, spray lightly with water. But usually I never had to do it.

Even better. That's what I was hoping. The condensation won't cause any problems?
