Can fondant be put on top of cream cheese frosting (non crusting) basically just butter, cream cheese, pwd sugar and lemon juice. I know things like bettercreme or pastry pride can't be used. I will have to put the cake in the fridge to keep cool because of the cream cheese but I guess I will just risk the fondant getting condensation. I do not want to use the stable cream cheese frosting that is out there because he wanted the cream cheese to be pretty dominant in taste, thanks a million!

Yes, I do it frequently. Where are you located? The issues with condensation on fondant after fridging are humidity related, so Alaska good, Florida bad icon_smile.gif

I've done it once, and it basically made my fondant wither and melt. It was really strange. This was the only time that has happened to me. The cake was a 2 tier cake, and the only tier it happened to was the one frosted with cream cheese icing.

I made a 2 tier cake just a week ago with cream cheese icing and covered it in fondant. I kept it in the fridge until about an hour or so before it was served. Had no problems!

I've done it before and it turned out fine, it was a 39 degree (celcius) day and it was both hot and humid.

When the cake is taken out of the fridge just make sure not to touch it, it will 'sweat' but dont panic that will disappear icon_wink.gif
