ok, need some help. i always use the wasc recipe for my cakes. i have a request for a red velvet cake, which i've never done. so my questions are: do they make a red velvet mix? if so, does it work well with the wasc recipe? also, will be covering with fondant--does it hold up well under fondant? and finally, don't want to use a cream cheese icing (can't refrigerate). what do you think of bc with red velvet?
thank you, bakers, looking forward to your advice!

can't refrigerate. might try the suggestion of mixing homemade buttercream with canned cream cheese for a filling

If you want cream of cheese icing, try this recipe. The amount of sugar acts as a preservative.
