I've done this in the past - however, when you take it out of the fridge, put it in a cardboard box while it comes to room temperature. That way if there is any moisture, the cardboard will absorb it and you won't get tiny little dots on your cake.

You should refrigerate. thumbs_up.gif I don't like to refrigerate my cakes so I don't use perishable fillings.

This is exactly what I do, and it works great!

p.s. @ cakesbyOma- your name made me smile and brought back such fond memories... there was NOTHING better than "Kaffee und Kuchen" at my Oma's house! icon_biggrin.gif

there was another post on this subject a while back. Suggest you buy some Polar Fresh dehumidifiers. They work really well (I am on my first one). They cost $30 for one years supply and include two crisper drawer packets (which really help keep the fruits and veggies crisp!). I have a modeling chocolate covered (dummy) in the frig right now and the stickiness that usually comes from having in the frig is greatly reduced. Keeping fondant covered cake in a box too while in the frig helps. But check out those Polar Fresh filters. Well worth the $$$ I think.
