Yes, it does hold up in the heat- not for too too long though, in the sense i work with it very comfortably in a hot, restuarant kitchen without worrying that it will go flat on me. Nonetheless, it tastes best when chilled.
You can color it but it takes on light, pastels best.
You could add fondant decorations, but I wonder how that will look? If you have a plan, go for it.
Someone else had asked, does it freeze? YES! I whip a large batch and freeze if I am not going to use it for 1 week, which is what it lasts in the cooler. You can also freeze the liquid in small batches and whip what you need when you need it.
