I'm not sure there is anything you can do except move the cake to a cool room. In the future you may have to had some tylose to help firm the fondant due to humidity issues. How much tylose? You'll have to experiment. Just try a measured amount each time you try it until you get it right, then write it down in a cake journal so you always know what techniques worked for you. icon_wink.gif
