Can I use cream cheese icing under fondant?

I once tried to use cream cheese icing under fondant and it didn't turn out well. It's like the icing melted? It was a mess! Is there a cream cheese icing recipe that I can use under fondant? This bride REALLY wants cream cheese icing!

I have heard horrible stories about using CC under fondant. I would try a CC flavoring and add it to buttercream. I have read that LoAnns makes an excellent CC flavoing.

Okay, I'm going to go with the cc flavoring then. The last thing I want is a big mess on her special day! Thank you!

When doing Red Velvet (or some other cream cheese buttercream vehicle) under fondant, I always let my client know that the cake will be FILLED with the cream cheese, however for stability reasons, I will cover it in either SMBC or a ganache.

 

Never had anyone question it.  People would rather see a standing finished product than obsess over the need for all cream cheese.
