I am making a fondant cake with the chunky strawberry filling in the recipe area. The recipe is below. My question is does this need to be put in the fridge? It's being picked up on Thursday night for the next day. I am just worried about the fondant being sticky if it's in the fridge. AHHHH.....what do I do???
Chunky Strawberry Filling
* 1 lb frozen whole strawberries
1/2 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons corn starch
Unthaw frozen strawberries and keep liquid. Place strawberries with liquid in saucepan and using kitchen scissors cut into small chunks. Mix sugar and corn starch together. Add mixture to chunky strawberries and mix together. Heat until bubbling-stirring constantly. Boil about two minutes. Cool and fill cake.
Yes, you will need to refrigerate with that filling. Your cake should be fine this time of year as it's cooler outside.
If you're really concerned you can place the cake in a cardboard box and make sure all edges are sealed. Bring it out and let it sit at room temp. for a couple hours before taking it out of the box.
I would definitely stick that cake in the fridge.
