How to Store a Fondant Cake Overnight

Fondant is a time-tested staple of cake decorating. Rolled fondant, composed mostly of confectioner's sugar, a bit of shortening and water, coats the cake with a smooth elegant finish. It is often used to cover round, special-occasion layer cakes. Once applied to cake, fondant icing cannot be refrigerated.

The condensation that results from refrigeration causes the icing to melt. A covered cake saver is an ideal storage container for a fondant-covered cake.

Place the cake plate on the base of the cake saver or inside the cardboard box.
