AHeeeelp! I covered a cake with fondant, 3 tiers, yesterday and out it in the fridge because of the filling (custard and fresh fruits; mousse, lemon curd). I took it out 1h ago and the fondant is melting and sticky! What to do to dry it out? They will pick it up at 4 :(

Get it in a cool spot away from any sun and turn the ac down if possible. I have actually had to point a fan at the cake before to help it dry. HTH

I don't know where you live but in Florida with the horrid humidity it would take longer than an hour to dry for a cake that size. Just don't touch the fondant while it's still wet & sticky but it will eventually dry. I know that doesn't help when you have someone coming to pick it up but I don't have any other ideas. ;-D
