Has anybody had the experience to work with a Red Velvet cake covered in white Fondant? I am just thinking that it may bleed to the Fondant. Thank you.

You will have to but some kind of icing, like buttercream, on the cake before you put the fondant on. The fondant won't come into contact with the cake.

I have done red velvet covered with white fondant. I put a thin crumcoat of BC on the red velvet and you could see the red cake through the white fondant. I love red velvet, so when I do it again, I will put a thicker coat of BC or even better, white chocolate ganache!

I've done fondant on red velvet without any bleeding of red onto the fondant. The top tier of the not swarovski crystal wedding cake was red velvet. Below is the link to the pictures. There are a couple of closeups of the top tier so you can see there was no problem.

Thank you everybody for their good responses.
Although, Cakedujour answered exactly what I was asking for... Your cake looked really great. What Red Velvet recipe did you use for the cake? I'm planning on doing a small test, just to be sure.
Thank you again everybody!
