I just finished a motercycle cake and I don't know if it is the humididy or what but my fondant (mmf) is all sticky and gooey! I closed my windows and turned on the AC but I don't know if I should let the cake at room temp to dry? or put it in the fridge...
and I have to deliver this to a boat dock tomorrow.. is it just going to end up all limp when they get it to there party? icon_cry.gif

sorry for the rambling..I just need a little advice (and maybe a little venting too!)

What you did should work just fine. It is more than likely the humidity. I've had that happen many times and closing the windows and turning on the air always works. DO NOT put it in the fridge! This will cause BIG problems when it comes back to room temp such as air bubbles and sweating (causing water spots)... It will be fine...just let it cool off/dry off. It'll be better by morning!

It's definitely the humidity. Next time, put it in the fridge when it's done. That is where I keep mine, and I never have a problem!

I would agree, do not put it in the fridge. That will cause all kinds of problems when you take it out and it starts coming up to room temp.

post #5 of 5 will REALLY start sweating if you put it in the fridge!!! esp MMF!

Do you have a dehumidifier? Sometimes I bring mine into the kitchen and it really works!
