My fridge decided to break on me and i had a few cakes in there chilling since last night.  I only realized it was warm today.  Do you think the cakes will be ok? I moved them to another fridge to chill. I don't have time to bake and decorate again before tomorrow. ugh!

You should be just fine.   My ex was a appliance repairman - as long as the frig was not opened and exactly how warm it got most likely everything is fine.   You've already moved them -- that's good.  I'm sure they are fine as it was just overnight.

As -K8memphis said, unless you had perishable fillings, your cakes did not even really need to be refrigerated, so they will be fine. And, as kakeladi said, it takes a long time for a fridge to cool off, if the door is kept closed.  I believe you are in good shape.

Thanks for your replies! I  moved them to another fridge and it only has buttercream on it. No fillings.

They will be fine.  Lots of folks do not refrigerate their cakes at all.  I do, mostly out of habit.
