Does any one know a good way to help with the humidity problem with fondant on cakes? I have an AC and it works good while in the house but as soon as the cakes leave the house in the summer they sweat! Sometimes even compromise the cakes decorations. I make the cake and take it in and out of the fridge to keep it cold while I decorate, does anyone else have the problem of sweating cakes from being in the fridge? I only have to keep them cold in the summer, we are in Canada so the winter there is no need. Any suggestions for anti sweat?

I'm in Florida & I never put mine in the fridge at all. The change in temp is what makes them sweat. If it's at room temp, I keep it at room temp... HTH!

Okay what about really really dry fondant, I live in Southern Colorado and I have a heck of a time covering cakes in fondant the air is darn dry. Is there anything I can do about that?

Dry fondant - add a little Karo Syrup.

I'm going to try a dehumidifier, I think that might help. Maybe a humidifier would help the problem of dry fondant since we have the opposite problem : ! ha halol
