I'm making a baby shower cake for my sister in Las Vegas. It'll be around 100 degrees out there, i think. It's dry heat, not at all humid. It's going to be a pretty big cake....I doubt it'll hold up outside, but will it be okay indoors at 80 to 85 degrees? I'm planning on using marshmallow fondant to cover the cake. Would a different kind of fondant work better? Please help!
