Hi guys,

Want to know if you can use bettercream underneath fondant and if so how long can it be outside at room temperature.

Is bettecream also stable to hold said strawberry filling with fresh strawberries without spilling out of cake with pressure of fondant?

I remember reading that bettercream was not a good choice under fondant because it wasn't stable enough, especially in the heat. I would think it would be fine as a filling though. And you just know someone will come along and say they use it and it works like a charm, lol. icon_smile.gif I remember when I used to think fondant couldn't go in the fridge and then I got a bunch of replies saying they do it all the time. icon_smile.gif

What is bettercream? At first I thought it was a typo and you had meant to write buttercream. I have never heard of bettercream before!!

I used straight chocolate bettercream to fill my last 2 cakes and it held up well. Granted, they were BC covered, not fondant. As far as staying out, it's non-dairy so there's no risk of spoilage. The My Little Pony cake in my pics sat outside in 85+ weather for 2 hours and nothing moved at all.

We use bettercream for fillings all the time. It works great and doesnt spoil fast.

Bettercream is a non dairy Frosting, you can cover cakes with it, if you don't want buttercream mostly sheet cakes I don't think you can do tiered cakes, it tastes like whippedcream but not too sweet, and a lot of people, including myself use it a lot to make fillings, it can be mixed with fruits like the sleeve fillings and I make a lot of cheesecake filling with it
