I am new to the cake business and I am not sure about fillings for these cake due to the fact that I know u can't refrigerate a fondant cake.
can I use a filling that is based on cream cheese/heavy whipping cream ?

You can totally refrigerate a fondant cake. Just make sure when you take it out you don't touch it for a while, until the condensation dries off.

You want to be careful if you refrigerate fondant cakes due to the condensation mentioned above. This is the reason that fondant cakes should not be refrigerated.

If your fridge is too cold, when you remove your cake from the fridge and allow it to sit and return to room temperature, the condensation may cause your fondant finish to drip or smudge (then you have some last minute fixing to do). You CANNOT refrigerate an airbrushed, or handpainted fondant cake or your colour will run due to condensation. In our shop we always side on the more cautionary end of things and we do not refrigerate fondant cakes. We do however use homemade jams as fillers which do not require to be kept cold. We find the more cakes we make the more we learn everyday, and one thing we know, fondant is finicky and in general does not like the cold. Hope this information helps.

You might want to try a fondant covered cake in your fridge, take it out and let it come to room temperature without touching it. I also was afraid to do it, but I made a bleeding heart cake last week, handpainted the fondant and refrigerated the cake. I took it out, didn't touch it and let it come to room temperature and it was fine, no running, even though it was painted with red Americolor. I would think that humidity could affect it too so you might want to test it sometime. I was very pleased to see that I could refrigerate a handpainted, fondant covered cake.

You could use one of the many sleeve fillings available. I use them a lot since I can't sell anything that requires refrigeration.
