I just made a cake with royal icing (words on the cake). Am I right thinking that it would be a mistake to refrigerate this ? I am worried about the royal melting.

There is no problem to put RI in the fridge but what is the cake decorated in buttercream or fondant? I wouldn't put fondant in the fridge.

First, I have never frosted a whole cake with Royal so I am no expert, but in case no one else responds....I believe I have heard that before as well, to not put Royal in the fridge.
So unless someone else says otherwise...I wouldn't.

Hope that helps somewhat.

The cake is decorated in BC. The royal is just the words on top.

The issue would come from if the cake has any condensation on it when it comes out of the fridge. Moisture, especially condensation will soften and or melt royal icing.

what's in the cake that it needs refridgeration? Unless you used a perishable filling you should be fine leaving it out. (as long as you used an american buttercream, not sure about IMBC or SMBC)
