Will The world end if I use fondant icing on a carrot cake?

Thanks Wally that's kind of you.

Yes Christening and cake were both a success.

Hope you enjoyed it, and the Christening.

Thanks I made it today.

I put a creamcheese filling on the inside and a thin smear all over the outside and covered the whole thing with fondant and its worked.

hopefully it won't taste vile

Isn't it best to allow fondant to dry a little before you decorate?

I think I'd give it some time to do this.

Ooh thanks that's a good idea.

Do you think I should but the fondant disc on at the last minute so it doesn't absorb the moisture from the creamcheese or I am worrying over nothing.

Why not just put fondant on the top as a circle and then decorate the sides with cream cheese and toasted almonds?

At least then the cake won't be too sickly from the icing?

Novel idea for a Christening cake - I've never heard that before!

And no the world won't end but the cake definitely will - I love carrot cake but can take or leave a fruit cake.

I really want to make a carrot cake for DS's christening but I won't be able to write on the top in icing if its got creamcheese icing so can I use fondant? Will it taste odd? I'll put creamcheese as the filling.
