Hi, everyone! I'm making a wedding cake for some friends this weekend. That's going fine... however their groom's cake is not.

It was made by someone else and has been refrigerated at the MOB's house. All I know at the moment is that it is chocolate buttercream and is sweating like mad. I'm going to try and help them salvage, but I work mostly in fondant, so am out of my depth.

Do y'all have any advice for ways to remedy (or at least lessen) the situation?

Thanks so much for any advice given!

Sounds like condensation. Unless it is melting the icing I'd say leave it be and let it dry.
