A relative asked if I could decorate a cake with cream cheese frosting instead of the BC - does this work? I'm thinking it may be difficult to decorate with?
If it works, any good recipes for a stiff cream cheese frosting?
Cream cheese frosting can be a little softer, but it can still be used for decorating. It also takes longer to crust. The cake needs to be refrigerated after frosting to preserve it.
There are probably several recipes on this site for cream cheese frosting.
I just tried it yesterday. My first time I tried to make it like butter creme except I used cream cheese instead of crisco...l.big mistake....it was a very soft mess....I loved the flavor but it was very soft. I ended up adding some crisco but still soft. I used it because I am covering the cake with fondant and it really should be okay that way. I just cannot imagine making a rose out that...good luck with finding a stiff cream cheese frosting i would love to use it ..let me know if you find one ...thanks
