Preparing a fondant covered 3 tier wedding cake.  Stressing now, because the wedding reception is outside and our weather has turned.  Going to be 86 outside at the time of the wedding.  The cake is only filled with buttercream so no problem with spoiling.... but worried about fondant.  Will be refrigerated until I deliver the cake, but then will be outside and in the shade.  Will it be OK.  Someone out there has to have had experience with this.

It should be fine. 86 degrees is not that bad, many people have done cakes outside in much warmer temps! Especially if it will be in the shade. And the fact that it is chilled and covered in fondant will help too, fondant will protect the buttercream under it. If you are still concerned, the only other option would be to have them keep the cake indoors until the reception starts, so it is not sitting out the whole time during the ceremony too.
