Okay I did some searching and found some bits and pieces on storing a cake but I need an opinion from the more experienced cakers on this. So I made a baby shower cake, baked, frosted, covered in fondant and decorated all last night. The shower was to be at lunch time tomorrow so I was to deliver the cake today. Well the shower was moved to Friday at lunch now. icon_eek.gif I wasn't as worried about the cake sitting until tomorrow afternoon but now it's going to sit another day. I used a doctored mix (the one with sour cream and pudding in it) so I think it'll stay moist, I frosted with my homemade buttercream (mostly butter) and then the fondant. Would it be best to keep the cake out on the counter or should I put it in the fridge to keep it fresher? I've put fondant cakes in the refrigerator before without issue as long as I don't touch it while it comes back to room temp. If it helps, the a/c is on at home but it's 80 during the days right now. Let me know what you think. Unfortunately I don't have time to make another cake because I have another cake I'm working on that is due Saturday (my first ever two in one week). So what do you think, fridge or counter?

Well according to Nic Lodge putting fondant on a cake is like putting it in Tupperware. Since it is not filled I would personally leave it out of the ref. that is what Nic does.

Thanks SandyS, that's what I'm going to do is just leave it out. Hopefully it still tastes good tomorrow. icon_smile.gif
