I'm wondering how it works with a wedding cake with a filling that would normally be kept cold. The filling for the cake I am delivering tomorrow has filling with cream cheese and cool whip. I've been able to keep it refrigerated up to now, but once the fondant is on..........................

How do you handle this? Hope I haven't made a bad would really be okay out a while, but this will be overnight.

I use Satin ice fondant and I refrigerate ALL of my cakes, without exception (I rarely fill with buttercream). I've never had issues because of it.

I also refrigerate my fondant covered cakes, even fully decorated and have never had a problem. I use Satin Ice, MFF and Peggy Porschens recipe and have never had any trouble. Not sure why people are so worried about refrigerating fondant????

I think it depends on your area. I always have issues with refridgerating fondant, esp. this time of year, unless its FondX.

I thought the problem with refridg. fondant was it softened up due to condensation.... I have refridgeratored only once and didn't have any problems but I'm not sure either.... bump

ok, so the cakes are ready to have the fondant on. Really wish I'd used a different filling, but what's done is done. I have one fridge that seems to cause more condensate than the other, so I'll use the one that doesn't. Wish me luck!
