Want to use almond cream cheese pound cake for DS's birthday cake. Planning to use strawberry filling.

I know that a whipped bc would be good with it (think strawberry shortcake) but need a stiffer icing that will color & pipe well so I am considering using the wedding-crusting cream cheese icing recipe submitted by aztomcat.

My question is ...will using cream cheese frosting on a cake that contains cream cheese be too much? WWYD?

For anyone who would NOT use the crm cheese frosting...which whipped bc recipe would you use?

As always thanks for the help!

Thanks! I'll try it and see what happens. I am tired of making plain ole white cakes filled with vanilla pudding...LOL!

As far as I can remember the pound cake doesn't have a distinct cream cheese flavor either...just adds richness.

Will update after this weekend with the results...my family & DH's will be here for the party and neither is afraid to voice their opinions!
