Hi everyone, I need advise whether to keep a fondant covered cake in the fridge or not. I'm concerned because it's a red velvet cake with Cream Cheese frosting. how do you do it to keep it from getting all the moisture. does the silica thing work? Also, how long could you keep it in the fridge? Or could I just leave it out at room temperature and for how long. Help please! Thank you!
I too would like to know.....
Take the room temp cake, box it & cover the box with 2 layers of saran wrap. When it comes time to serve it, allow it to come back to room temp. while it's still completely wrapped. This keeps the humdity from condensing on a cold cake, creating sweat. It should be just fine.
Thanks a lot Rae. That's great! I'll start doing that!
I put fondant covered cakes in the fridge all the time. No box either. Yes, when it comes to room temp. it does form some condensation, but that just gives it a nice shine and takes care of all the excess powdered sugar marks. The shine goes away as the cake sits out, but I actually like the shine. Deepens the colors.
