Julie,

You can refrigerate cakes covered in fondant. You need to let the cake come to room temperature and don't touch it until it is dry. A lot of people refrigerate their fondant cakes.

With that said, I usually refrigerate most of my cakes because they have perishable fillings (Bavarian cream, strawberry or raspberry fillings, etc.). I use IMBC and I also refrigerate that.

If it's for a cake for just my family, I don't mind leaving it out for a couple of days (if it's just filled with IMBC). but if it's for someone else I always advise them to refrigerate.

Hope this helps!

Annie

You do not have to worry about the CAKE itself....... you do NOT have to put it in the refrigerator...... IF you have a FILLING that you are worried about or might spoil being left out, keep it cold.....

Julie,

I have never heard about that. It sounds like it's more trouble than it's worth. I have never had a problem just keeping the cake in the fridge, stacking when it's cold, and then just transporting the cake to its destination.

It will be fine-don't worry. icon_smile.gif

Unless you live in a tropical location you do not need to put anything in/near the cake to keep it cool, nor do you need to keep the cake in the refrigerator.
As the others have said, it's only if you use a filling that has cream or eggs in it that you need to keep it cold.

I live in a tropical location (Sunshine Coast in Australia) and do not refrigerate my cakes unless I have to (due to fillings etc. or extremely hot weather above 30 degrees cels.).

I always say to my customers, for best eating results do not refrigerate. Cakes don't like the fridge, the fridge environment can make them go stale faster (like it does with bread) and makes the cake firm, changes the texture and taste. Cakes taste better at room temperature.

Julie,

You don't have to worry about changing the ingredients in your recipe. Once the cake is baked it is fine to leave out. If you have fresh fruit fillings or IMBC then I would refrigerate it. It won't hurt the cake at all if it's been chilled. Just let it come to room temperature before eating.

If you use IMBC and your house is hot then you will have to refrigerate it or it will melt.
