hi i need a good recipe the crema cheese filling for cupcakes if you have one and want to share with me ,Thank a lot .Love
This one is from wilton, I like to use as a filling too:
Cream Cheese Icing
Gently sweet Cream Cheese Icing has a surprising twist of orange zest. Great with Carrot Cupcakes!
1/2 cup Butter (1 sticks)
8 ounces cream cheese (softened)
1 pounds confectioner's sugar (4 cups)
1 tablespoons Milk
Makes: Icing serves 2 3/4 cups.
NOTE: Do not use light cream cheese or butter substitute. If margarine is used, icing will be softer.
1. In a medium mixer bowl cream butter and cream cheese together until smooth.
2. Add sugar and milk.
3. Beat on high until smooth (only 30 seconds to 1 minute).
4. Thin to ice cake smooth; use full strength for piping borders
check the wilton site; it also has a strawberry cream cheese filling recipe
I recently used this one. It actually called for mascarpone, but I only had cream cheese on hand. I made it plain, then added the espresso powder to half (for chocolate cupcakes) and left the othe half plain cream cheese (for strawberry cupcakes). It has a thin consistency, but I han no problems while filling the cc. You may add more sugar if needed.
Espresso-Cream Cheese Filling (24-30 cupcakes)
8 ounces cream cheese
2 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp finely ground espresso beans or espresso powder
2 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese, milk, vanilla and espresso until fluffy. On low speed, slowly beat in the sugar until smooth. Transfer filling to a pastry bag fitted with a 1/4-inch plain tip. Insert tip into the top center of cooled cupcake and dispense about 2 tsp filling into the cupcake.
