Ok, so I know the rule is generally not to put a fondant in the refrigerator, however when watching these shows lately I'm seeing them put a cake that is finished and covered in fondant in the refrigerator!!!

Does anyone know how this is done? In general I have not had good experiences with cakes the refrigerator. Especially in the summer, when I put a cake in the refrigerator, then take it out, it sweats!! Sometimes even ruins the decorations.

Can anyone school me on refrigerator use and cakes??

I know Buddy V. uses Satin Ice which CAN be refrigerated. I dont know about Amazing Wedding Cakes. I refrigerate my SI cakes all the time, I just let them dry out FULLY before touching them at all when I do refrigerate.

Really? I use SI too, I did not know that they can be refrigerated! What about roses or decorations made with fondant?? Can they be refrigerated as well?

I use Satin Ice and refrigerate all my cakes without having any problems. Yesterday, I used ganache under fondant, refrigerated it and also had no problems.

RyalnTy, do you refrigerate after being fully decorated with bows and such??

I use Satin ice and I refrigerate all of my cakes, FULLY DECORATED. The fillings I use require that they be refrigerated, so every single cake I make gets put in the 'ol icebox, and I've never had a problem from it.

I refrigerate all my cakes. Never had a problem even fully decorated. I prefer to use choco-pan.

The only problem i have had is extended time in a commercial walk in cooler. It seems the walk in cooler where i work is much more humid then my home refrigerator. I also, have central air that pulls the moisture out of the air which helps. If you are working with little or no ac and the humidity is what it has been lately around here. You will have problems. BTW Jessie, i'm just across the river in Hudson.
