AI am making a red velvet cake. I am using cream cheese frosting on the cake so I have to refrigirate it. But I don't want the fondant to get hard. Is there any way i can refrigirate it without it getting hard? I will be making it and decorating it a day before so it would be sitting in there for a good 24 hours. I will be using Satin Ice Fondant.

ARefrigeration doesn't make the fondant hard, air does. That's why you have to keep fondant you are not using covered in plastic wrap.

Hi, this is a great read. This is exactly what I would do to save my cake for 2 days. hth  your cake could get dry just in the fridge. Leah_s on this site tells us that. I listen to her !

AI don't really like Satin Ice because it dries out and gets a firmer texture. I use the Duff brand which is Fondarific and it stays soft.
