If I remember correctly, Satin Ice doesn't do well in a regular setting in the fridge. If you can raise the temp a bit it should do better. Some say it will sweat and will dry out over time of sitting out.

There are two other fondants that work better in the fridg... fondx is one of them.

depending on how comfortable you feel about the design and structure of the cake as to whether you construct at home or on site. I think it is up to the individual and type of cake... is it a sturdy cake (white w/out filling), etc... that's how I base it on anyway

I use Satin Ice as well and don't refrigerate my cakes, I just wrap them up in press & seal so they don't dry out and that seems to work well. I also don't travel with mine fully assembled, I prefer to assemble on site if at all possible...icon_smile.gif Good luck!
