I am worried about refrigeration....
I know this has probably been asked a million times, but when I am 'searching' for key words, I get random forum posts coming up, with nothing pertaining the the key words I am entering.

Any tips on how to do this? Is there a 'safe' cream cheese recipe to use?

You can refrigerate fondant, I do it all the time. Satin Ice refrigerates well, I've heard that Michele Fosters recipe does as well. Just don't touch it when you take it out of the fridge until the condensation dissipates.

yes, I am looking for a safe cream cheese frosting, to use under fondant, so that I don't have to refrigerate. I am worried about the fondant bleeding, sweating, or colors running..... I am doing cupcakes with fondant domes... plenty of decorations on them, and I want to be sure they will be ok.

Thanks for your replies!

I've refrigerated airbrushed on white...see my Orca cake, and it didn't bleed or run at all. Pre-colored fondant vs painted fondant doesn't bleed either. It should be fine. The only time I've heard of problems is with certain marshmallow fondants, but I don't use those.

I had the purple bee cake in the refrigerator for an embarrassing amount of time... Just couldn't part with the little thing! Anyway, it didn't bleed.

Maybe make up a little figure or something with the fondant and leave it in the fridge overnight as a test to see if anything runs. Do you have the time for something like that?

Good Luck!
