It's a normal physical reaction.  It happens any time a cold object comes into contact with warm, moist air---like the condensation that forms on a glass of ice tea on a hot day.

Best solution is to leave the cake in the fridge only long enough for the icing to get cold, but not long enough for the cake itself to get cold.  That will keep the condensation to the very minimum, if any formed at all.
