Hi, I will be making a cake that -once assembled and decorated- will be hard to refrigerate. I will have heavy cream in the filling and I have no idea how long dairy can be out in room temp (indoors) to stay fresh. I don't eat dairy products myself so I know little about them... thanks for any help

I am no expert...and I might be mistaken but dairy products and fruit fillings have to be refigerated. I know that when I use my whip cream, it is a non dairy (frostin pride) this can stay out. I hope some other more experienced CC'ers can correct me if I am wrong. But I would keep refigerated. Are all the fillings going to have that filling?

I will keep it refrigerated until I put the final decorations on and that will be the same day as I deliver. I just wanted to know if it's ok for it to be out at least a couple of hours. How long does it take fondant to come back to normal look without the condensation from being so cold? I don't want a cake with puddles on it.

If it has that kind of filling is best to refirgerate. If you use something like bettercream then you can leave
outside overnight with no problem.
