I personnally have not had a problem with putting a fondant accent on a bc cake then refridgirating. I do make sure the bc is either not completly set or make sure the back of the fondant is wet with water before attaching to the bc. I am fairly new to cake decorating, but that is my experience so far. I hope it turns out well for you, and I can't wait to see the pic.

If the symbol is going on top of the cake, and if the bc is freshly done, you don't even need water --simply lay it on there and the grease in the bc will be enough to keep it set. If it goes on the side of the cake, then by all means brush a very small bit of water on the edges and in the middle to adhere it. VERY small amount. You don't want the black of the bat to run into the bc. Either way, you can refrigerate once it is placed. It will probably sweat a little when you remove it, but won't cause any issues.
