I've been asked to make a pudding filled cake, but i usually make my cakes the day before the party. can i put a fondant covered cake in the fridge? or is it going to have wet marks (condensation) after i take it out? any suggestions? thank you!

I always refrigerate my fondant cakes without any problems. But in warmer weather if the cake starts to sweat, cool it in front of a fan and it will dry up.

yup, do it all the time and if I deliver of if they pick up I always tell ppl to keep refrigerated and take out about 1 hour before serving this way if it is humid than the fondant won't fall off the cake and have never had any complaints. HTH

I was scared to try it his weekend but it was hot out and I did not want to transport a warm soft cake so I put my fondant covered cake in the fridge. After hearing the horror stories about condensation ruining the cake I did not want to at all....but it was just fine! Nothing at all happened! It probably depends on how humid it is...???

thank you so much, i'm going to try it next time! if it works, it'll help with adding different fillings.
