I made a cake last month, crumb coated it in BC, covered it in fondant and put it in the fridge for a few hours and it started sweating when I took it out. Luckily that cake as for myself so it didn't matter. However, I'm making another one this week with mousse filling and I will need to refrigerate it. Are there any tips to avoid sweating? Is this affected by the thermostat of the fridge? Will wrapping it in cling wrap help?
I have refrigerated my fondant cakes before but never had this sweating problem before.
I've always had problems with fondant sweating if the cake underneath is not room temp. i've even had fondant pieces that are decoration on the cake sweating so much that they actually start to run down the cake. the only way i have been able to prevent it is not to put it in the fridge.
