I have never covered a chilled cake in fondant.....Can I do this with no problem? I am doing a double layer 1/4 sheet cake and I want to cover it in MMF....BUT wanted the cake chilled so it's easier to handle when filling.

any suggestions would be helpful...I'm still just a newbie!!

I personally covered a small cake that was straight from the fridge and had no problems. However, you may want to read some of the replies on this thread and decide for yourself. Hope this helps...

I do... After covering the cake in fondant, I put it BACK into the frig so that the temps "equalize" and no bubbles... icon_smile.gif Has been working for me... My friend Janell taught me that one, and I used it on my Mardi Gras cake. Worked like a charm for me... icon_smile.gif It will sweat a little when you take it out...just don't touch. Once it's up to room temp, no problems...
