Cake once iced in hot weather

I am loving this hot spell we are having. However once I have iced my cakes I don't want to put them in a fridge as the icing sweats. Any ideas if a cake is ok to stay at room temperature after icing as I have used buttercream and frightened it will go to soft and cake will not keep shape, in this heat. Been ok in mild weather spells. Thanks


Find the coolest place in your house, keep the cake in it's box and have a fan running if you've got one. Cake should be ok fingers crossed!
