I have yet to try if I can use fondant decorations on a cake iced with Pastry pride. Can this be done...or will it make my fondant saggy and wilty?? My family does not like BC only whipped cream. Thanks =)

I meant to say Frostin Pride...but I think both Frostin and Patry pride are very similar

The expert here is Melvira. I asked her the same question. You can put fondant or gumpaste accents on, but wait till the very last minute to do it. I did a 50/50 mix gp/mff on the sunflower wedding cake in my pics, they held up for a good 3 hours with no problem, before the cake was cut.

I've used FP only as a filling since I cover my cakes over with fondant...very delicious especially when added with some white chocolate!

A really good alternative to BC is SMBC. It's like whipped cream, not as sweet, smooths nicely and fondant can get applied to it with no problem. Here's one of many links to a thread that has a ton of info about SMBC: http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-594605.html
