im just wondering if i decorate cake with fondant and want to store it in the fridge for a while, can i place a gumpaste cake topper on top of the cake or will it soften . is it best to leave it till just before presenting
please if ye can help
I would not put the decorated cake in the fridge because when you take it out it will start to sweat. And yes the gumpaste will get soft, i would put it in a dry place. Sometimes if you want to keep the gumpaste decorations for a long period of time you can store it inside the oven, turn off obviously... hope this helps
Never put gumpaste or fondant in the fridge. There is too much moisture in there and it will just end up as a soggy mess. Always store in a nice dry box (preferrably not a plastic container). It will last for years this way.
I put fondant covered cakes and cakes fondant accents/decor in the fridge all the time with no issue. If it is a model or figure I leave that off and let it hang out on the counter or in a box in a cool dry place, but anything small or that doesn't stand up, I have had no problems with that being in the fridge and coming back to room temp okay....
thanks all. i too have put fondant covered cakes in the fridge i know the cake does get condensation once it comes out but it dries in okay.
if u say not to put them in the fridge wud it not matter if the cake is filled wit buttercream . i often have to deliver the cake the nite before so this has always confused me.
