I know I know everthing I have read says its a big NO NO but....

Cake Boss Buddy Valestro just did it the other night...the episode where the bride did not like the cake and messed it up with frosting.

He decorated it beautifully then popped the whole cake in the refrigerator.

so whats your take?

I think it depends on the fondant you use and the humidity in your area. I just started using Satin ice fondant so I wondered if this fondant could be refrigerated. I had some decorations for a cake left over. I put in one made with Satin ice and the other with the wilton. The next day I took them out of the fridge to see what would happen. The wilton (as usual) became sticky, the Satin ice however was dry and not sticky. I want to experiment on this but I have to wait for a cake of my own to experiment with.
