I have cakes that need to be crumb coated today, but can't be iced completely until tomorrow. Will they be OK in the fridge like that until then? Thank you.

I believe they will be fine..I've read that crumbcoating them keeps in all the moisture. I dont think the fridge is necessary, unless you have a perishable filling inside.

I crumb coat mine while they are settling and just leave them out on the cabinet. Never had a problem.

Thank you everyone ..

Is it just preference on keeping them in the fridge or on the counter?

I do the same thing. I know that you *can* place the cakes in the fridge with the crumb coat, but everything I have read says that the fridge can pull moisture out of the cake. This is why I only use non-perishable fillings and I never place my cakes in the fridge.

I don't usually fridge. I notice that when I do fridge I get those huge air bubbles on the sides of the cake from the condensation.

Also, if you use a crusting buttercream such as Indydebi's, if it's still cold the icing may not crust.

I don't put cakes in the fridge, because....

1. I never have the space for them.
2. I would then have to deal with condensation.
