So, I had a random thought...
Has anyone tried putting whipped cream such as Bettercream or Pastry Pride (or any other non-dairy) under fondant? I've used Pastry Pride & Frostin' Pride quite a bit but never under fondant. I have a customer that does not like buttercream, likes whipped, and wants fondant.
ANY thoughts??????

Nope. Too much moisture content. Melts the fondant from underneath, deflates, and seeps.

Sorry.

Put your whipped frosting as a big fat filling (but just make sure you put a BC dam around it.

First time I used whipped cream as a filling and covered the cake with fondant, it literally 'ate' the fondant where touched it. Make a dam and in the end seal the whole cake with tiny layer of chocolate ganache, it should be ok (here in Switzerland and generally in Europe BC is not used as much as in the US, people generally don' t like it a lot, so I have to use mostly whipped cream or other fillings). Good luck icon_smile.gif

Thank you everyone, answers my question. For some reason I didn't receive any notifications anyone had replied. I'll just make a very thick layer of whipped filling and use as little buttercream as possible as you all mentioned. Thanks icon_smile.gif

Or try SMBC... it is lovely, tastes like whipped cream, AND won't melt the fondant.

Not sure of the health regs where you are, but it could be an option. icon_smile.gif
