Can I do that?? I have a cream cheese frosting cake that has fondant accents on it, but I want to put in in the fridge because it is hot in my kitchen and the icing isnt setting like I need it to to hold up the decorations. I have heard of fondant "sweating" when put in the fridge and that would be a complete disaster if that happened... Please let me know what I should do!! Oh, and the fondant I am using is Satin Ice. Thanks!!

If the fondant is just accents than you shouldn't have a problem. If you're really worried about it pull it out 3-4 hrs before the party that way if it does sweat it will dry by the time you need to serve it.

I use Satin Ice and I refrigerate all of my cakes, without exception, and have never had a problem. When you take the cake out of the fridge, if it's a little hot or humid int he room it may sweat a little, but just leave it be and it will evaporate. I usually crank the AC so that sweating hasn't been a problem for me.

I use Satin Ice and I always refrigerate without any problems. I've never had a problem with condensation.
