What happens if I put a fondant topper in the fridge?
If you are wondering what happens if I put a fondant topper in the fridge?, you are in the right place. Today I talk to you about it and give you some advice on this subject.
Often, especially in summer, we don’t know how to deal with fondant and high temperatures. But it’s actually easier than you think.
As for the cake or dessert, it is always better to refrigerate it, otherwise the result can be catastrophic.
But what do we do with the figures or decorations?
It depends. It depends if the decoration is stuck to the cake and cannot be removed. Or if it is a figure and we can remove it.
If it is the first case, we can’t do anything. But if it is a figure, things change.
My recommendation is that you do not put it in the fridge. There’s no need. The fondant does not require, as a general rule, a refrigerator for its conservation. So it is absurd to put it in the fridge.

If you insert it, and you do it improperly, you will only make the figure sticky. I recommend that you leave it out, on a dummy. Here are two articles that may be useful to you: How to dry fondant figures and Can I make fondant decorations in advance?
If finally, you ignore my advice and decide to do it, you can do it just like you would a fondant cake. Put it in a cardboard box and then cover it with transparent paper to prevent more moisture from entering it.
Humidity from the fridge is what causes the fondant to sweat inside the fridge. For this reason, some refrigerators are wonderful, and they are no frost, they do not retain moisture and therefore do not make the fondant sweat. That’s why I think they’re wonderful.
I hope this article has been useful to you and you know what to do.
