Someone please help me!!! 

I got a cake for my mums birthday which is tomorrow, I was talking to my sister in-law and she said not to put the cake in the refrigerator.

i have put the cake in the refrigerator and it is down at the venue, it has been in thee refrigerator for 8 hours with out me knowing i shouldn't have done that!! The cake is decorated in fondant and it has a sugar flower on it, I don't know what type of fondant they have used!

Is there anyway of making sure nothing bad happens to the decoration of the cake or anyway I can fix it if I have to???

please help

I have never refrigerated fondant, but reading other people's posts who do, many do, so this is what I can offer...

The cake comes out of the fridge and a few hours before the event

It will start to condensate / sweat - don't touch it and it will eventually dry out OK and be unharmed.

The condensation/sweat will be much reduced if brought out of fridge into a cool air-conditioned room (rather than room temperature or heated room) first
