Im making a thanksgiving cake for my husbands shop. The cake is a pumpkin spice cake and the filling has heavy whipping creme mixed into it. Can i cover a cake with fondant that has a filling like this one? i was going to use a cinnamon buttercream as well which would have heavy whipping cream as well...

If the filling is stiff and you're using an American b/c, then yes you can cover the cake in fondant. (Just be sure to use a substantial dam to keep the filling completely sealed in.)

ahhh thank you so much the filling amount for the cake size really helps. So if i cover the cake in fondant,i wont have to worry about the filling going bad correct? I wanted to put fondant over it tomorrow (tues) because his party will be on wednesday.

A whipped cream filling will definitely require constant refrigeration until the cake is served.

When you take the cake out of the refrigerator, don't touch any spots of condensation as they will evaporate on their own leaving no trace behind - unless you touch them, then they will leave marks.
