You can use buttercream and it will hold the candy casing to the cake. Hope this helps!

If the candy shell is thick enough it should not crack. I put icing inside the shell first. I went all around the inside with it and then pretty much built my cake layer by layer inside the shell. I put some icing on the sides and bottom and put in a layer of cake, iced that layer and put another layer in, etc...This way it fit pretty snug inside the shell. Of course your cake is going to be a bit smaller than it was originally if you are using a shell/ casing. As far as I know there is no way around that.
