okay so i have always been very worried about putting cakes with ANY fondant on them in the fridge. in fear that they might sweat, but i have been reading a lot of peoples posts that mention refridgerating their cakes even with fondant! does anyone have any advice! cuz i am always waking up super early in the morning to get my cakes out of the fridge so i can finish up with the fondant parts! lol this is a hastle and probably not necessary. your thoughts would be greatly appreciated! thanx

I put mine in the fridge too. They do sweat when they first come out, but if you don't touch them they are perfectly fine.

I can't imagine not putting them in the fridge. Makes delivery feel safer.

Yeap - whole cake, decorations and all. When it first comes out of the fridge it will sweat a bit, but leave it alone and it will dry up and be fine.

I also put mine in the fridge. I only have a problem with sweating in the summer time. (I'm in NYC) for added security you can put it in the fridge in a closed cake box, when you take it out just let it sit in the box until it comes to room temp without touching it or peeking in. icon_smile.gif this should prevent sweating completely.
