It should be refridgerated, due to the cheesecake filling. Will it fit in your fridge? If not, could you take it to the church tonight and keep it in their fridge until you need it tomorrow?

If the filling contain cheese then I'm sure it needs to be treated like fresh cream and refrigerated.

Can anyone please tell me ifI should put the finished fondant cake in the freezer or refridgerator, and if it should be wrapped/covered... icon_smile.gif

Just sit it in the fridge...no wrapping. That will make it sweat and that's not a good look for fondant....or BC. icon_razz.gif

That should be enough! icon_biggrin.gif

Nice cake too!

I've haven't put fondant covered cake in the fridge yet (but I haven't used any perishable fillings either) but I was reading about this very thing (went in search of something else) just yesterday and the response from Colette Peters was (It's about 1/3 of the way down):

<lisa> Can you refrigerate a cake covered in fondant?

<KathyT> Won't fondant sweat if refrigerated?

<Colette_Peters> You can refrigerate cakes with fondant if you cover them with plastic wrap first.

I don't know if that's the best way to do things or not but I just thought it was worth mentioning.
If you do decide to cover it, keep the wrap on the cake until it it reaches room temp so if it does sweat it should do so on the outside of the wrap not on the fondant.
If you don't cover it and the fondant starts to sweat than let it dry by itself (don't touch it).

Well actually if you leave the plastic on after taking it out, with fondant on, it will cause the moisture on the plastic to drip onto the fondant and that will make your fondant wet. Wet fondant = running color and sticky fondant.

Leaving the plastic on after removing from refridgeration applies only to cakes that are crumb coated and frozen. This allows for the cake to thaw thoroughly, and keeps the moisture in. Thawing a frozen cake uncovered will cause a dry cake.

I've done plenty of cakes with fresh, dairy based fillings and fondant, and sitting them in the fridge uncovered is no problem at all.

If your fondant isn't dusted or painted, I guess you could cover it, but it's not really necessary.

I just put a fondant covered cake in the fridge last night, took it out today, after about 18hrs. in the fridge, and it was fine today. It was uncovered in the fridge, and sat out for a while maybe 3hrs. and it was fine...no sweating for me!

I have refrigerated a finished fondant cake with no problems. I did wrap it in plastic wrap and then once I took it out, I took the plastic wrap off. It was fine.. no sweating at all.
