When in doubt, make a test cake to see what happens when you refrigerate your cake with the intended filling and frosting/fondant. You don’t want to be surprised about this. Refrigerated fillings are delicious, though sometime they are a double-edged sword. Butter cakes do not taste their best right out of the refrigerator. Combine them with a refrigerated filling, and you have to make a choice. Cold cake or warm filling. Either one is not good. And, you don’t want people telling the host/hostess that the cake was ”dry” because it was cold. Switch to a different cake recipe or use sugar syrup on your cake layers before assembling to help the cake retain moisture so it doesn’t dry out while in the refrigerator. Remember that gum paste and royal icing decorations on a cake will be ruined if it is refrigerated.
Non-Refrigerated Fillings, Any of the sleeves of fillings bought at your local cake decorating store should be fine at room temperature. So are the jellies, preservatives and ganache. Whenever using the fillings in the sleeves, remember the dam of frosting around the edge of the cake. You don’t want it oozing out once the cake settles. Trust me on this one. That is why it’s best to use the following technique for fillings. Make sure that you have a thick dam of frosting going around the edge of the cake. Add no higher than a 1/4” high layer of filling. For example, whenever I use lemon filling, I split the cake layer in half, add the dam of frosting, spread the lemon filling and then put the two layers together.
