Always refrigerate to let the frosting set. Once it’s set, cover the cake in fondant. Set your cake in a cake box that has room for it to fit without the fondant touching the top or sides of the box. Refrigerate again to set. This is your insurance policy when you deliver the cake. If the party is at your house, and it’s cool inside, you can leave it out. Refrigerating this kind of cake makes it easier to slice so that the filling doesn’t ooze out of every slice. You want a nice presentation. When you cake is removed from the refrigerator, please remember to give it time to ”sweat.” Don’t touch it during this period or you will leave a mark. Let the cake come to room temperature. Usually, by the time you travel to your destination, and it’s time to serve the cake, the fondant will be okay to slice and the dewy, shiny look will be gone.
Refrigerated Fillings, If your event is held indoors whether it is a big hall or someone’s home, feel free to use a filling that has to be refrigerated. Cream cheese, custards, pastry cream, whipped cream, puddings, and any mousse type fillings that include fresh fruit are perfect for these venues. Cakes can remain refrigerated until right before serving. Let people know when they request these fillings that there needs to be space in the refrigerator to store the cake until serving. A lot of people fill the refrigerators with everything else and then have to scramble to find room for the cake. It cannot sit out for a long period of time or there will be a disaster. Speaking of disaster, please do not mix up a batch of the pudding mix as it is instructed on the box and use that as a filling for your cakes. Unless it’s made like a mousse, it will not hold up to the weight of the cake on top and will ooze out and make a mess.
