This cake is eating away at my inner emotions. I will have to deliver this cake close to 45min away. I typically refrigerate my buttercream cakes unstacked and transport them that way. But I'm not sure what to do with the layer that appears to have fondant/gumpaste Ruffles. My walk-in fridge does not have humidity control and I know the fondant will melt if it sat in there over night. So how do I transport such a delicate layer? Should I put the Ruffles on at the venue? Or put them on and let them harden and transport it not refrigerated?

Can you wrap the ruffle tier up in a plastic wrap cocoon and refrigerate it that way? Maybe do a test to see if the condensation will stay off of the fondant if you do it that way.

Make the ruffles with modelling chocolate and there won't be any problem transporting them! :)

That cake photo looks like it's already set up at a reception venue, it doesn't look to have any damage.

 I do not refrigerate my fondant covered cakes.  It should sit out very well without refrigeration.

Why does that tier have to be refrigerated?

It doesn't have to be refrigerated. The whole issue is I work at a country club and 99.9% of my cakes are for right here at the club. This cake though will have to be transported about 45 min. Away. Normally when i transport cakes I refrigerate the buttercream layers and transport them cold. But since this cake has a fondant layer I was unsure how to transport it. I don't want to get to the venue with broken Fondant ruffles.
