Hello, I've iced a 2 tier cake (with supports) last night to deliver tomorrow. Currently the weather is great drying out weather however the forecast is for storms this afternoon with heavy rain with high humidity. The location for delivery is a 2 hour drive away and is also forecast for heavy rain all day and high humidity tomorrow (poor bride). Should I be concerned that my fondant is going to turn into a gooey mess or am I going to be ok?

In my experience after the fondant has set overnight, humidity isn't a problem. But if it's extremely humid while it's setting, that can be a problem. It can stretch and if it has no place to go, it can buckle or puddle. Good luck :)

Thanks for your reply. It's had a good 20 hours to set now. Feeling a bit more confident. Cheers :)
