I am new to this site and cake decorating and loving both!! I am making a cake for my daughters birthday and it will not fit into my regular plastic cake carrier.

How do I store a large cake covered with fondant? icon_confused.gif

I'd appreciate any help and comments.

You can just keep it out, unless you have persishible fillings...........since it's covered with fondant, it should be fine just sitting out for several days....................I've never had to keep one out longer than 2 days though............

It depends on how long you plan to store it before serving and if there are any perishable fillings.

If you need to store it a long time (more than 3-4 days is my threshold) then refrigerate it.

If you just need to store for a few days and there are no perishables then you can leave it in any cool dry place in your house where it will not be disturbed - i.e. by pesky pets, curious kids, hungry DH's. You can also loosely wrap it or cover with a large clean cardboard box.
