Hi, I just made a beautiful guitar cake for my sons first birthday. It is covered in fondant. Ive heard that you are suppose to store the cake in a box overnight but it is WAY too big for any box. Should I leave it uncovered overnight? Will the fondant get too hard? Please help, his birthday is tomorrow and i really do not want to ruin this cake after all this work.

Thank you so much!

If the cake is covered in fondant, it is sealed and protected inside. Unless it has a filling which needs refrigeration, it is perfectly alright to leave out on the counter for the birthday tomorrow. The fondant will be OK.

Have fun at the party and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Yep! As pp said, if no perishable fillings, then leave it out. You can lay a loose layer of plastic wrap on it so dust doesn't collect on it. Hth!
