completely normal...just don't touch the fondant until it's dry. sometimes, if it's especially humid out, the moisture won't dry...it's rare, but possible

You can minimize the issue by boxing and wrapping the cake. Condensation will occur on the outside. By wrapping the box you make that the outside while the cake comes up to temp.

Obviously only a concern when it is an issue. If it just a cake for the table at home - no worries.

Cakes do not need to be refrigerated once decorated unless you have used a filling that requires refrigeration or you are in a very hot, humid location/room. Box it up and leave at room temp.
If you do put it in the frig, then BosCake said is good advise.

If you get bad condensation, you might put a fan on the cake but it's it's bad, I would box.
