Hi! I made a two layered sponge cake for Christmas with a buttercream and strawberry filling. I know the strawberries need to be kept cool so they don't go bad. I made MM fondant and covered the cake. Then I decorated it with Royal Icing. I have inserted a picture of the cake. It isn't finished yet. I have it in the fridge, and it has been in there for a couple of hours. I am delivering the cake to a friend who asked me to make it for her. I have to add a MMF bow on top of the cake. Is it okay to leave in the fridge after it is finished? 

 

Also, my mother accidentally put the rest of the MMF in the freezer for a few hours and I just took it out. Will it be okay to use in the morning or do I need to make a new batch? 

 

I'm sure there is a thread about this somewhere, but I am on my phone and I can't find anything icon_sad.gif

 

Thanks for all your help!

If your bow is flat you can probably put it back in the frige safely. If it's a poofy bow then it depends on how dry the bow is. My experience with marshmallow fondant--no I would not chill a mf puffy bow.

 

Your once frozen fondant should be fine.

 

And it depends on what kind of strawberry filling you used. If made from fresh or frozen strawberries yes probably best to keep chilled. If made from jam or store bought 'sleeve' type filling cool not hot room temp is fine.

 

Looks beautiful already very festive, artsy and I know there's more yet to come!

AI use mmf only and refrigerate after cake is completed every time. I live in New Mexico so the fridge is my friend. I only have problems in the summer when my cake sweats but thats another subject for another day. The longest I have refrigerated a completed mmf cake is 3 days. Looks and tastes just the same as if i just finished it. Good luck.
