How to insert fondant & pollen substitute

I feed fondant or sugar paste and pollen substitute to my colonies each spring.  Both take the form of patties that I insert quickly on top of the upper deep frames, under the crown board (inner cover).  I start feeding the fondant/paste around March 15th when the ambient temperature can be cool.  Therefore, I want a method of patty insertion that is rapid and exposes the colony to as little cold as possible.

This YouTube video shows you how I do it.
