Hi, newbie here! I have been doing a lot of research about fondant cakes and I have come upon some conflicting information about storing a fondant covered/decorated cake.

I have seen a fondant cake that's been refrigerated become dewy, but I'm nervous about it becoming dry if I leave it out. What do you guys do? Do you leave it out at cool room temp or put it in the fridge until it's delivered/picked up?

There's no necessity to refrigerate ANY cake (b/c or fondant) unless it has either a perishable frosting and/or filling.

Some do, some don't - personal preference (if nothing's perishable).

Your cake will not "become dry" if you leave it out. The icing and fondant seal your cake. I never refrigerate my cakes. Like JanH said "personal preference". The only time I've had issues with a cake is when I put one in the refrigerator. I don't use perishable fillings so there's no need.
