I made a cake for a friend now it has to sit till tomorrow, It is made out of buttercream, So my question is can i leave it in the fridge uncovered? or do i need it covered? I bought a box but it is too small says it is on size but it is not, so now i have nothing to put it in any ideas? would it be ok in the fridge uncovered?

It will most likely be fine, but just make sure there is nothing else in the fridge that might give off an odor, because fat grabs odors and doesn't let go! Also, make sure there is nothing on a shelf above that might leak and drip. If the cake is well-crusted and chilled, you can lightly drape it with plastic wrap for some protection.

Unless you have perishable fillings, you don't have to put it in the refrigerator at all.
