Ok.. I am new to cake decorating. Only been doing it for about 4 months now. I have been requested to make a cool-whip icing like cake. Like the whipped icing they make at wal-mart. SO I did it.. it actually tasts pretty good and I was able to make it thick enough so it sticks, by using merengue poweder and geletin. The cake is for tomorrow (sunday Nov. 22 @ 3pm) I already covered the cake in this whipped icing... my question is, will the cake survive? I don't want it to fall apart and I should have thought to ask before just doing it... And another question, I put the cake in the fridge, do I have to cover the cake? or is it ok just covered in whippped icing and left in the open in the fridge? Please, if any one can help, I deeply appreciate it. Thanks...

I would get it in a box right away--it would be absobing all the frige aromas.

With gelatin and meringue powder I'd think your stuff should be fine--got my fingers crossed for yah.
