I need to make a Hunny Pot for an upcoming baby shower and I want the honey at the top to look realistic. Can I use caramel sauce on top of fondant and still be ok? Don't know the effect of that on fondant for any length of time. I could always add it at the last minute since I have to travel with this for two hours first and will be adding the bees and figurines last minute as well. If anyone has any tips please let me know?

IMO, caramel sauce will be too dark. What about piping gel tinted yellow with the TINIEST bit of brown?

I did a Winnie the Pooh cake (in my photos) and I used poured sugar for the honey. I mixed in just a touch of yellow and brown food coloring. I think the effect worked, and it hardened nicely.

My mother made a whinnie the pooh cake with a honey pot and just used honey.
I think it would work the same as piping gel or corn syrup.
