i need a recipe for a customer she requested vanilla filling that is like pudding...but it cannot contain gelatin...i was thinking maybe a vanilla custard but can that be left at room temp???? I am making a fondant cake and it would have to be out of the fridge probably for a day or so

custard shouldnt be left out at room temp.. You can put fondant in the fridge, in case that was the issue..

some people use instant pudding, made with whipping cream instead of milk and it makes like a mousse. if you can get bettercream or pastry pride, it makes it even better as those are non dairy

I have tried custard and it will bulge out unless you use the thinnest smear and keep it in the fridge. fondant doesn't do well in the frig for too long, as you probably already know. it gets sticky

Vanilla pastry cream is delicious and easy to make.

Pastry cream is just like custard w/regard to refrigeration...isn't it? It's the stuff in cream puffs and eclairs...oh ok now my mouth is watering lol.

A custard filling won't bulge if you use a good buttercream or spackle dam.

If you plan to have the cake sit out for a day or so, you really need a non-dairy alternative like Pastry Pride or Bettercreme, if you can get your hands on those products. Add instant putting to it like lilthorner suggests.
