icing the Xmas cake

Is it necessary to use marzipan under fondant icing, to keep the cake fresh?
I want to decorate my cake with draped fondant. There will be a small bit open at the side - for sugar flowers to protude. Should I just package it up in fondant icing first?
Would welcome advice, please.

Marzipan mainly guarantees there will be no staining coming through from the cake into the icing.
