Hi,

I hear people talking about some cakes taking them 40 hours of work, etc and I can't help but wonder how they keep the cake moist for that long?

I am planning a cake for my nephew for Saturday night but I won't be able to work on it at all on Saturday so I'm planning to finish it on Friday night and then keep in the fridge until Saturday evening when I have to bring it to the party.

it will be a fondant covered cake (not sure if it will be vanilla or chocolate yet - he has to get back to me on that), and I have an edible image to put on top of the fondant. Don't edible images melt in the fridge?

Any advice would be most welcome!

I would NEVER put it in the fridge. It will not hurt it one bit to sit out for one day. Especially something with an edible image on it.

agree, do not refrigerate it. It will dry out the cake and wreak havoc on the edible image and fondant

I put mine in the fridge if it takes days to do, and it does not hurt it at all. I am puzzled.

Yes it's ok to fridge your cake. All of mine are. The potential damage done has a lot to do with humidity and heat... I'm in AK so I have neither icon_smile.gif

Yes, refrigerating does contribute to the staling of cakes. Just keep it well wrapped.
