Ok, i am so sorry to be asking this question, (especially since i read the post about the pet peeves icon_eek.gif ) but i have been trying to look for this in all of the forums and could not find anything. I KNOW it is there somewhere but my limited knowledege of computer usage is keeping me from finding anything. icon_redface.gif

Can I refrigerate my cake with the buttercream on tonight and add the fondant decorations tomorrow morning, or should I just leave the cake at rm temp? (carrot cake with cream cheese frosting)

Or should i just add frosting tomorrow am, wait for it to crust, then add decorations?

If I refrigerate my cake will the condensation affect the fondant decorations?

Thank you all SO much. thumbs_up.gif

Yes you can refrigerate tonight. Don't worry about condensation. As long as your home is cool and not Hot, it will do fine. If you use creamcheese icing it does need to be refrigerated.

The great thing about applying fondant decorations to a chilled cake is, you don't need to wet the decorations. They stick to the condensation!

Ditto everything rosita6882 said.

Thank you so much Diane and Rosita. Your comments were very helpful. I will try to post a picture (remember, 'limited use of computer usage') of my first ever cake to sell icon_lol.gif

I would put it in the fridge. Especially with the cream cheese frosting (homemade recipe anyways). jmo
