I have a friend that I am making a cake for and see whats cream cheese icing. Can I decorate with cream cheese icing and what is a good recipe?
It usually is a very soft icing that does not hold decorations well.
Earlene Moore has a good cr ch b'cream icing that you might want to consider using.
A few of my customers said they couldn't taste the cr ch so maybe you could ice the cake w/your cr che then decorate w/Earlene's.
I agree. I also have trouble getting cream cheese icing perfectly smooth. Just take your time. I would use something else for decorations and maybe the filling and outside of the cake with cream cheese.
ive made earlenes CCicing too, and you cannot taste it, i agree with that. but next time i will add a bit more cream cheese or get the CC flavouring from Lorannes.
Hi and Congrats on your 1st post, chinadoll.
CC crusting cream cheese recipe:
Earlene's cc b/c:
Using your favorite decorating b/c and either cream cheese or cheesecake flavored extracts gives you the best option - tastes like cc but isn't too soft for decorating!
I just did a cake with cream cheese icing and I iced the whole cake with it and made a batch of buttercream icing with creme bouquet flavoring and it went very well together~~~HTH
