I've only used Pastry Pride for desserts -- never to decorate a cake. Can you add fondant pieces to it? Can you decorate on it with buttercream? I need to make a drum cake, and I'm trying to figure out what the best way is to put the side pieces on. Also, how early can you decorate it? Would it be ok for 24 hours in the refrigerator, or will colors run?

Thanks for any help!

there is a post started by Melvira that is all about Bettercreme which I am pretty sure is about the same thing. I had all sorts of info in it.

I frost all my cake with PP. I've used it with buttercream accents and also put frozen buttercream transfers on it with no problems at all.
I've heard that if you put fondant pieces on it they will melt. Never tried it though. I've use gumpaste decorations on PP but the gumpaste was completely dry before placing on the PP.
You can refridgerate it for 24 hrs but I would make sure it was covered. PP tends to get a "stale" crust on it. I have refridgerated uncovered cakes for 12 hours with no problems.
I'm gonna look for thepost from Melvira. I hope ther's good info there.
Hope that helps!

Hmm...that post sure has alot of pages! I've never used Bettercreme but I'm sure it's almost the same as Pastry Pride. I know it's more expensive than PP, and if you choose to flavor it, I doubt there would be much of a difference. I'm going to buy some Bettercreme and check it out.

Can I use PP as a filling w/raspberry puree and let it sit overnight on counter, covered in fondant? Thanks!

Yes. Because it is non-dairy, it will not spoil if you don't refrigerate it. I mix in dry puddings, crushed oreos, flavorings and basically anything that does not require refrigeration and have never had a problem.
