Okay so I have a problem.

I have a wedding cake for this Sunday & they want it done on Saturday. I already made all the cake & bbuttercream & they are in the fridge (I didn't have a choice but to put them in there) but I'm not sure what to do now. There isn't a cool place to leave it once the fondant is on. We are in New York & humid which ik not used to. So my question I guess is when should I buttercream / fondant the cakes if I don't have a cool place to leave them. Should I buttercream them tonight & leave them in the fridge overnight then put fondant on tomorrow? PLEASE HELP ASAP!!

You can also buttercream and fondant tonight and put it in the fridge if you are afraid you won't have enough time tomorrow.  There is no problem putting fondant in the fridge.

Ugh... Okay so change of plans. Now I'm going to do everything tomorrow at a hotel where the temperature is hopefully better. But now where should I leave the cakes? Hot room temp? Freezer? I don't think I should leave them in the fridge because I think they will dry out. Thanks!

Are you really sure you want to haul each and every tool and ingredient you may possibly need to a hotel just to have an air conditioned work space?  Plus it doesn't solve your initial problem of where to leave the cake.

Well i have been doing that anyways because I live in California & I came to New York to do this cake & I was working in a club/restaurant tiny kitchen so I bring everything with me every day. But I think the room itself will be cool & air conditioned.

They'll be fine in the fridge tonight again (I assume they are well wrapped), or you could freeze them and by the time you get to the hotel tomorrow they will be partially defrosted and nice and cool to work with.

They won't dry out? I have no freezer, I thought I did. So do you think it would be better to try to take them to a hotel in air conditioned/room temp or fridge until tomorrow afternoon? @Dayti
