I will be making a fondant covered pistachio flavored cake decorated with fondant pumpkins and fall leaves on Thursday night and will deliver it on Friday. The person who ordered the cake will store it until Monday. Will the cake still be ok or does she have to put it in a refrigerator until Monday? I will not use any filling in this cake. I appreciate your input. Thank you!

Does any part need refrigeration?

The best way to determine this is the weakest link. Are the filling and buttercream stable? If they are, you should be ok. Fondant, if sealed tightly, is a great way to preserve the moisture in a cake.
