Can fondant decorations be put on Pastry Pride iced cakes?  OR do they melt? :(

I'm thinking of icing my  cake w/PP (or Frostin Pride) but want to decorate with fondant pieces.

Seems to me I've read people have had problems and I don't want that :)

I've never tried it, but here's a link to a helpful tips sheet:

At the very end, they say:

 

Quote:
NEVER PUT FONDANT ON PASTRY PRIDE – DOESN’T WORK WELL. Especially if you refrigerate
the cake the fondant will become slimy and slide off.

 

I'd love to hear if anyone else concurs!

I read on the Bettercreme thread that people paint white chocolate on the fondant decorations to avoid intact with the cream. Bettercreme is same as Pastry pride. I thought that was a great idea!

Thank you gals for the info.  That's what I thought I'd read somewhere along the way :)  Might use the white choco idea.  The client wants PP instead of my usual b'cream for a Val Day cake.

Help am from California where Pastry Pride, Bettercreme & Frostin are readily available. However, am visiting Joplin, Missouri just over Arkansas. Where do I find any of these products. No Costco nearby.

**UPDATE**  Just thought others might be interested in how this worked out.

I did some fondant decos and was able to put them on the cake just about 1/2 hour before serving and they did just fine.  I didnot put any choco on the backs.  I'll be doing another cake the end of April that I'm thinking of putting fondant chicks (or a big whale) on and will back them w/choco just to be on the safe side.
