Yep I refrigerate all cakes!

The only time I've had trouble with ganache is that I often have my cake fridges set really cold....and the ganache cracks on me...but as long as I turn my fridge up to a more mild (but still safe) cold, it works just fine.

I refrigerate all my cake too...fondant and iced cakes. I've never had a problem with either.

Perfect! Thanks for your reply! I have a cake I have to do for Sunday and I have to make it tomorrow so now I'm confident it will be ok!

Yep it will be fine in the fridge...I refrigerate every single cake. Helps for transport, too, makes it nice and firm. I just tell customers to serve at room temp but usually that's not a problem since its on display for a couple hours before the party.

Thankyou Kitagrl! That's good to know from a couple people. Last time I drove a cake somewhere it cracked(the buttercream) I didn't put it in the fridge b/c it had fondant decorations on it. luckily it was for a family member but still. Now I know!
