How to store a fondant cake overnight???

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I am making my first mmf cake that is for my fathers b-day on Saturday and I plan to decorate on Friday. From what I have read, you cannot refridgerate fondant, but I was planning on using a chocolate pudding filling. So I guess my question really is, what type of fillings do you usually use in your cakes when you cannot refridgerate them??? I will be making a chocolate cake. Please give me some suggestions, time is running out! I am desperate!! icon_sad.gif

You can use a chocolate ganache. It can sit out about two days. Or you can melt chocolate and it to your BC to make a yummy filling. I usually use store bought pasrty filling that doesn't have to be refrigerated.

The cake I did yesterday was a banana fudge cake with bananas and chocolate ganache. I let it sit out one night, and it was fine. The fondant keeps the cake fresh...just make sure it is in a cooler environment.

Speaking of fondant is it a good idea to store fondant covered cakes in the cold cellar or cantina???

FYI, I have refrigerated fondant cakes with no problems. Of course, my experience is limited to 6-ish fondant cakes.

Definitely at least 2 days, perhaps 3 in the refrigerator. I would think you're oK with overnight. I don't cover it in the refrigerator or anything, just put it in on a top shelf so nothing can spill on it.

That's really good to know. Thanks cakesbyellen. I've heard so many different things about fondant that it's hard to decide what is best when it comes to storing it. Now at least I know I have more filling choices icon_biggrin.gif Does that apply to MMF also??

Yes, MMF and regular fondant. I only use MMF now, but I did use regular and didn't have a problem. I hope I'm not steering you wrong though. Like I said, my experience is a bit limited. Good luck though.

The main problem with fondant is humidity which is why a fridge isn't a good idea. Too much moisture can cause fondant to collapse. I normally recomend keeping fondant covered cakes in a cardboard box in a dry place. The temperature doesn't actually matter.

What would I do in a situation where I want to use a filling that requires the fridge??
