Haven't been doing this long but would like to know about refrigerating decorated cakes. Should cakes with fondant be refrigerated? Is it best to refrigerate cakes with buttercream?
Most people only refrigerate if they are using a perishable filling.
Perishable fillings include:
Traditional buttercreams (shortening or butter based) do not normally require refrigeration.
Thanks a lot for the help-like your website
Happy to help. You'll love CC. It's a great community. And thank you for the compliment on my site
From my experience... Fondant is NOT friends with the fridge... It will accumulate condensation once you remove it from the fridge and starts getting back to room temperature. There will be little water droplets on your cake and the droplets do not evaporate. I try to stay away from perishable fillings in a fondant covered cake.
