i think i asked this before, but im not too sure...

would i be able to fill a cake with whipped cream, and still cover it with fondant. this will be a 2 tiered cake.

im not too sure if the fondant will make it ooze out everywhere.

or would i use the dam approach?

i have this cake due on the 29th and i need to know if this is possible.

one more thing, since im using stablilzed whipped cream and strawberries for the filling, how would i refrigerate the cake without the fondant sweating?

Honestly, thank you so much for you time reading and responding to this.

I would make an icing dam and refrigerate your cake at all times to keep everything firmed up. You can do fondant, it might sweat when it is taken out of the fridge, but that will dry and it will look fine. I have been using michelles delicious fondant recipe and haven't really had a sweating issue.

Thank you so much akgirl10 for your response.

Im using MMF instead of Michelles, would that be the same?

Whipped cream frosting or filling will dissolve fondant. icon_sad.gif

So be sure to frost the cake in buttercream before applying your fondant; and use a buttercream dam to keep the whipped cream filling separated from the fondant. icon_smile.gif

Jan H is right, sorry i forgot to mention that you need to ice the outside with buttercream.

Hi, I'll tell you my expierence from some time ago...I iced a cake with whipped cream and put fondant decoraciones such: letters, hearts, mini-balloons---I finished the cake the night before and it looked so cute the next day all the fondant decorations melted! icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif
The cake was for my son and I, sort of, fixed it but it was dissapointing icon_sad.gif

By the way, the fondant was Wilton brand...someone said that MMF holds better.
Ever since then I haven't tried fondant on whipped cream.
