I am about to fill a cake with banana creme pudding and just had the thought of does it have to be refridgerated after opening? Its one of the pre packaged ones in the grocery store ( not in the refrigerated section)
Yes, the pudding from those little cups has to be refrigerated once it's in a cake.
I'm covering it in mmf with a wilton fondant ribbon - is that okay to go in the fridge also?
Do you need to attach the ribbon before refrigerating? If you can leave it off until just before delivery, you'd be better off. I have had great success refrigerating MMF covered cakes. I fridge all my cakes as I only use SMBC under fondant. Just let it set at room temp until any condensation has evaporated - and DON'T touch it, even if you're tempted. Good luck.

Is it a pudding cup or a sleeved pastry filling in a plastic tube.
The pudding cups don't require refrigeration until they're opened... Then treat the same as you would fresh pudding.
The sleeved pastry fillings don't require refrigeration after opening unless you have left-over product, which should be refrigerated to extend its shelf life.
