I'm making a cake w/ fresh strawberrys/ whip cream. It will be covered in MMF. The cake is due on Sat. But I want to finish it Friday. So I was wondering if I can refrigerate it.

I am someone who doesn't like fresh strawberries left in a cake for long than a few hours - but that is just my preference.

I use fresh strawberries a lot - it's my DD's favorite - and I refrigerated fondant without any problems. But a lot of people don't and won't - so you will get many different opinions.

We never have any problems doing that. Should be just fine!

So I can store fondant cake as long as I put cake in a box?
Can I also Saran wrap fondant cake and put in frig?

I have never wrapped one in Saran wrap before, so I'm not sure. I did put one in a plastic cake taker - that was the only time I got condensation! It did dry (finally!) but a box (IMHO) is the way to go.

To prevent condensation it's not so much that it needs to be in a box or wrapped while it's in the fridge as it needs to be in one when you take it out of the fridge. That's when condensation forms on a cake. A box will prevent the humidity in the air from reaching the cold cake. So any condensation will form on the outside of the box, not the cake.
