I am baking cake right now, but I realized that I don't know if I should refrigerate the cake or not. OK here is the situation. I am doing my sister's wedding cake white cake with strawberry glaze and fresh strawberry filling, cvered in fondant. DO I refrigerate because of the strawberries or don't because of the fondant? WHAT DO I DO????

I've covered many cakes in fondant and have had them in the fridge without a problem. I think it should be okay.

If it's fresh berries you should refrigerate or they can go bad and your fondant if it's MMf or SI it will be ok on the fridge, just give it some time to come to room temperature before the event. HTH.

as long as your fondant isn't mmf, then putting in the fridg should be fine.. maybe raise the temp a bit so it isn't so cold which could/should reduce condensation when taking the cake out to bring to room temp.. but you will have to keep chilled because of strawberries.
