I am making a cake that needs to be refridgerated due to the filling. It is going to have fondant accents on it. Will the fondant be okay in the fridge?
Thanks so much!

Yeah it will be fine. There are a ton of threads on that topic right now... Some people say thiers sweats. I've never had any problem putting Fondant in the fridge.. But what kind are you using just to make 100% sure

okay thanks! I knew I saw some other posts, but couldn't find any. I will just be buying Wilton fondant and using that.

I've used wilton a couple times. I've had zero problems. I cover. Leave it out for at least an hour (This could even be while decorating) and put it in the fridge overnight

If your fondan't don't have too much shortening it will be fine. If it does than it will sweat when you get it out and it will look shiny and sticky. (on the cake) accents i believe wouldn't sweat those are pretty much dry and not touching anything humid? Good luck!

When I made my first cake I used ready made fondant, don't know the brand but it was a UK one, anyway I had no idea about this don't put it in the fridge rule so I did and the cake literally melted in front of me so I had to scrape it all off, that put me off putting another cake in as I didn't want to risk it, but last night I decided as the weather is getting warmer to test it out I used my own mmf and quickly put it on a small cake and it was fine. I don't know if the smallness of the cake would make any difference, or if it was because it was different fondant last time. My mmf feels quite dry to the touch if you feel it, whereas the ready made I used felt quite moist and left coloured residue on my hands so I think it was mostly down to the fondant.

Sorry this seems kind of long and pointless now I'm reading it back but what I am basically meaning to say is if its covered well I think it would be ok, and as long as your fondant isn't too 'greasy' as my store bought one is
