This is one of the most commonly asked questions upon delivery of a cake: how do I store my fondant covered cake?
Well, fondant is one of the most versatile, creative mediums available to both professional and amateur cake bakers. It can be colored, flavored, rolled, cut and molded into virtually any design you can imagine. Along with these wonderful qualities, however, comes a diva-esque trait that demands attention: Fondant must be stored properly to maintain its soft, delicious consistency. Take the time to treat your fondant-covered cake well and it will reward you with amazing flavor and a beautiful presentation
Fondant covered cakes do NOT need to be refrigerated. A fondant covered cake will keep for about 5 days in a cardboard box, with a cover, in a cool dry place. Store the cake away from direct sunlight or fluorescent lighting. Too much light can cause colors to fade or change.
Other than worrying about the humidity and sunlight, once my cake is done, I mostly have to worry about the kids trying to “see it”. “I’m just looking mom..” tends to give me a bit of a heart attack. So, once I give you your cake, just leave the cake somewhere that kids/animals/husbands can’t wreck it. If NO perishable filling/frosting then I leave it set out on my counter away from direct heat. This includes heat registers and direct sunlight. Allot of times I place it back in my COLD oven. This keeps tiny fingers from touching it, bugs, pets, dusts, and husbands AWAY from my cake. I then place a large note on my stove that there is a cake in the oven and to NOT TURN IT ON!!!!!
