Friday night I baked a cake for Easter Sunday and placed it in a plastic cake carrier Saturday morning to take with us to visit family for the holiday. Luckily the bunny I made out of fondant was too tall to fit in the carrier and I place him in a separate box. I finished all my final details Sunday morning and placed the bunny and decorations on the cake before everyone arrived for lunch. As we were leaving yesterday, my cousin wanted me to take some of the cake back home with us and I placed the cake and fondant bunny back in the cake carrier. When I got home the bunny was a sticky blob. Question: Are you not to put fondant in a plastic container? If not, how would you store a cake for a couple of days in order to hold over for a situation such as this.
Storing fondant covered cakes in a cardboard cake box (or something similar) won't cause melting.
