I'm making a 6", 8" and 10" round cake in column pillar style. It's fondant with a lot of pearl work including pearls hanging from the top.

My question is how do I store it? It needs to be delivered by 4pm Saturday. I've heard you can refrigerate fondant covered cakes, but I'm worried the condensation will make the pearls fall off. Should I just make the cakes the night before and keep them room temp over night? There is raspberry filling in the 6", but the rest is non-perishable buttercream.

I was also thinking that I could refrigerate the cakes before the fondant and then bring them to room temp to decorate. I heard this makes the cakes stale though.

Also, any tips on keeping the pearls on??

TYIA!!!

If some of the filling needs to be refrigerated you have no choice but to keep it chilled.

Any ideas about the other cakes that do not have raspberry filling? Or attaching pearls??

What raspberry filling recipe are you using? There are some that do not require refrigeration, I would go with that and then you won't have to worry about it.

Also some fondant can be refrigerated without a problem, Satin Ice is one of them that can be refrigerated.

Unless you live in a very hot and humid area I wouldn't refrigerate, but I would use a raspberry filling that doesn't require refrigeration.
