Welcome to Cake Central. You can cover the ice cream cake with fondant, but you will need to work very quickly before the ice cream melts. I am not that fast, so I wouldn't do it.

If it was me doing this, I would not have the top layer be ice cream. As it melts, it will melt the fondant. With a cake layer on top, the fondant might stick better.

It won't crack, but it will need a hot, sharp knife to cut it.
