I offered to make a cake with bavarian Cream filling, not thinking that there was going to be fondant on it. One likes the fridge one does not... What to do???

I have no issues refrigerating fondant. You just have to make sure you give it time to dry (an hour or two) after you remove it, as there MAY be some condensation. And don't do your painting or RI accents until you have let it dry.

Fondant does sweat once it's removed from the fridge. I did some royal icing stenciling on top of a fondant cake once, when I removed it from the fridge the condensation destroyed the stenciling. Therefore, as long as you have no buttercream or royal icing on top of the fondant, I think you should be okay.

i refridgerated fondant once; with b/c on the fondant as well... i just didnt give the cake a chance to warm up.. ie took it out of the fridge at the very last minute. and everything was fine. but in some cases you ned the cake to sit out for a bit and look pretty..lol

I've refrigerated several cakes overnight that were covered in fondant and had no problems. My accents were all fondant as well.

Every fondant cake I make gets refrigerated. Never had a problem!

If you use the sleeved Bavarian Creme (which is yummy) you don't have to refrigerate it.
