The first rule (in my opinion) is that what works for one doesn't always work for others. That is why you will see different answers.
I don't put cakes in the fridge because a. I never have room in the fridge and b. I live in an area with high humidity (it was 96% at 8am this morning) so a few seconds after something comes out of the fridge it is covered in condensation. Not everyone deals with the same issues.
A cake does not have to be kept in the fridge unless you use a filling or icing that requires it. After that, I think it is personal choice, what works best for you and your enviroment.
I also don't freeze many cakes because again for me it is a space issue.
The best thing you can do is experiment in your kitchen and see what works best for you.
This is why there are some many different ways to do things. It would be like asking people how they grease their pans. Some use the pan grease, others use sparys, some dont grease the sides, some use parchment paper There isnt always one right way to do things in the cake decorating world.
