hi there, nice to meet u all...question for you..have you ever made a red velvet cake covered in cream cheese frosting and then decorated with fondant flowersif so...
how did you apply fondant piecesroyal icing, vodka, etc?
when did you apply fondant as I know cream cheese cake should be refrigerated...
after applying decorations did you refrigerate with fondant pieces on?

I treat my red velvet cakes just like I do any other when it comes to structure. I use a plate & column system. Never had a problem (knock on wood).

Where are the fondant flowers going? Are they heavy?

I will post a photo of a groom's cake I did for this weekend. The entire cake is red velvet with cream cheese. All of the decorations are fondant, edible images, or cream cheese.

I baked the cake Monday, crumb coated Tuesday, final coated & started decorating Thursday, finished details on Friday. In between each phase, I refrigerated the cakes including with fondant decorations.

Hope that helps.

Not sure if you can tell, but the 2nd & 3rd tiers are cream cheese not covered with fondant. The little baseballs are red fondant circles with white fondant circles with edible images. The cream cheese held them just fine.

I just made a RV cake w CC icing and used water to apply the music notes, letters, etc to the cake. I didn't add flowers but if I did I'd just lay them on top and toothpicks maybe for any side flowers. HTH

hi there, thanks soo much for the reply!!Did you refrigerate after fondant pieces on, or just deliver? One more for torture...did you tell the client to refrigerate cake or leave at room temp........sorry....this cream cheese makes it so much harder than just fondant to fondant!
Thanks again

thanks soo much, worried that water would not hold as well since it is not adhering to fondant..so thanks again!
