So I made a cake this weekend that had strawberry and cheesecake in it. I frosted with a buttercream, but it didn't hold up well to the heat. If I were to use fondant instead...could I refrigerate the cake, or would that mess up the fondant?

I use homemade MMF and I refrigerate it all the time. The wilton stuff does not refrigerate well I found. It got wet from condensation and melted. The MMF gets some condensation on it too but as long as you don't try and wipe it off and just let it dry it's fine

according to MacsMom on this thread you can. I have never heard of that stuff I want to order some too!

I can't really speak for fondarific since I've never used it, but most commercial fondants (except for Wilton but that is not really fondant now is it...LOL) refrigerate just fine. SatinIce and Pettince sure do. I'd email the Fondarific people to ask them for sure. So does Michele Foster's and of course the recipe MacsMom uses for MMF. I personally have had a problem refrigerating straight run-of-the-mill MMF (i.e. the kind with just marshmallows and water). I think the added glycerin helps.
