I put fondant cakes in the fridge all the time. It might condensate a little after removing it, but it will dry up in about an hour. If you have dark colors or hand painting that you worry about running (or ruining) put a plastic garbage bag over your cake and tape it to the bottom cake board. This will keep it from sweating all together.
