Hello all!

I've been decorating cakes for about 9 months now. I cover my cakes in MMF. I always decorate and refrigerated my cakes the night before they're do. I've read that a lot of cake artists do not refrigerate after applying fondant. I'm in fear that if I have a filling that has dairy it may spoil.

What do you all do in this case? Is it safe to leave out over night??? I'd like my fondant to be soft and yummy.

Thank you all in advance!

if you do refrigerate you will have to take it out in advance of delivery to allow for the condensation to evaporate so that you will not be submitting a damp, sticky cake. It will be fine after that. I've done this just to test it and see for myself. HTH

I think it really depends on your climate and your refrigerator...I have refrigerated all my cakes, and have never even had a hint of damp and sticky cakes, even right after removing them. I always take them out hours before anyways, cause I'm not a fan of cold cake!

I usually take my cakes out for a while before I deliver. I live in CO...I get some condensation but not much. It's good to know that both of you refrigerate your cakes to.
