I am by no means an expert here, but I think I've read that you shouldn't use fondant over cream cheese. I know Lorann has cheesecake flavoring. I haven't tried it, but maybe you could flavor your regular buttercream with the cheesecake flavoring and then you could use it under the fondant.

Sorry I'm not much help. icon_sad.gif I've used fondant, but never tried it over cream cheese frosting. Maybe someone who HAS tried it can offer more advice. icon_smile.gif

Sorry but I don't think their is a cream cheese icing that doesn't have to be refrigerated. Cream cheese icing doesn't work well under fondant but I think that Edan has a Crusting Cream Cheese icing recipe here on cc that can be used under fondant. It still requires refrigeration.

A regular cream cheese icing is too soft to be covered with fondant.

1 - all cream cheese frostings must be refrigerated
2 - cream cheese causes some sort of weird reaction with the fondant and the two cannot be used together.
