How do I store a cake that's covered in fondant with a filling that needs to be refrigerated.

I've made a vanilla cake with raspberry filling covered it with fondant and stored it at room temperature because I know you arent supposed to refrigerate fondant. I felt okay leaving it out bc I know the raspberry filling won't spoil. I'd like to use a filling like whipcream or a bavarian cream or cream cheese filling. Those fillings usually need to be refrigerated but I can't refrigerate a fondant covered cake! What do I do?

If I can just leave it out and it will not spoil. How many days can I leave it out so it wil be okay?

You can refrigerate fondant covered cakes. When you take the cake out of the fridge, just let it come to room temperature, and let the condensation evaporate before you touch it, otherwise any marks left in the condensation will show.

I refrigerate fondant cakes all the time with no problems. Sometimes I have condensation, sometimes i don't. It depends on what the weather is like that day. If you don't touch it and let the condensation evaporate, the cake will be fine.

I had asked the same question a few months ago...

I ended up giving it to my friend and she stored it in the box, so I didnt get to see it the next day, but she said it was fine.
