I have a perishable filling in my cake that I need to pipe scrolls onto, the cake is in the refrigerator, should I wait to pipe the scrolls until tommorrow (its due at 2) Or should I take it out and let it sit at room temp. pipe the scrolls then put it back in the fridge? What would you do? Im worried it may take me a long time to pipe the scrolls and I dont want them to still be wet when I transport the cake?????? Anyone have any advise?

if your cake will sweat when you take it out of the fridge the royal will melt and run, mine did. id chill it tonight, take it out in the morning, let it finish sweating then pipe the scrolls before delivering the cake.

I've done intricate piping on fondant and refrigerated and never had a problem. I've even did intricate black piping without an incident. It may be best to make sure the royal icing is dry before you refrigerate. I like to deliver a really cold cake so wouldn't want to have it out of the frig for a long time before I deliver.
