Hi there

I'm a newby here - and to cake decorating in general - but I'm really hoping someone can advise me please.

I've just started my son's soccer ball cake, which I am doing as a whole ball, covered in fondant, and wrapped in a fondant scarf. I've prepared the 2 halves, and I was planning to put fresh cream in between them, but I've just realised that it could be a problem because fresh cream needs to be refridgerated, but I don't think the fondant should be. Can anyone advise me please?

Hi! Welcome to our sweet little corner of the internet! icon_smile.gif
Yes you can frig iticon_smile.gif
The best way is to put the cake into a cake box then put that into a big plastic bag. OR into an air-tight container such as tubberwear.
When ready to work on it or display remove it from frig up to 4 hrs before. Keep it covered until just before serving.

Thank you so much, for your warm welcome and for your valuable advice. icon_smile.gif
I'm so relieved, as my son is a bit of a fussy eater, and isn't too keen on buttercream, (didn't even eat the chocolate mousse that I used in my daughter's castle cake, which everyone else loved) and was very excited about the idea of having fresh cream in this. I hadn't thought about the fridge problem until I was just about ready to do it, so it all came to a grinding halt.

Thanks again. icon_smile.gif

ps - can I just clarify, though, if I take the finished cake out of the fridge, about 1.5 - 2 hrs before serving, is that OK, or does it need to be closer to 4hrs? I'm just worried about the cream going off, if it's out for too long.

Yes, 4 hours is the most the cake should sit out unfrig'd.
