Good evening everyone. I was just wondering if anyone has painted a fondant cake and put it in the fridge. I have an order this weekend that would be easiest to just paint the details on but I am worried that when I take it out for delivery what may happen. I just don't want the food color to run on me. Any tips anyone has would be great! I hand paint all the time, but it on cookies so I don't have to worry about those. If it is a horrible idea I can do the design another way. Thanks!

AI often hear it is a no-no, but I recently did two cakes with hand painted fondant accents and popped them in the fridge for a good 12 hours without any issues.

What it is about the cake that needs to be refrigerated?

AI refrigerate all my cakes to make them easier to deliver. I know some say dont do it but it works for me.
