Does anyone have an idea what can be substituted for Marscapone cheese in a Tiramisu cake? (but not cream cheese, I have a non-hazardous food license). icon_confused.gif

There must be something... vegan marscapone is just TOO labor intensive and I believe it would fall into the "hazardous-foods" catagory anyway.

Whoever figures this one out ~ THANK YOU a thousand times. icon_smile.gif

Is there a mock cream cheese recipe you can use? Something like the bettercreme and cheesecake pudding mix?

I do have several recipes, but each and every one falls in my understanding into the "hazardous-foods" category. Some of it is nearer to the original, some are "just so".
In almost every one is heavy cream - this would be "hazardous", wouldn't be? In others is cream cheese or cottage cheese.

I found a recipe for "mascarpone" too:

The problem is that here even cakes and cookies (but mostly cakes) fall into hazardous foods and I don't know where they differ.

I could use Tofutti "cream cheese" but since it would then need to be refrigerated I can't use it. I don't use vegan cream cheese in my cakes/fillings for that reason. icon_sad.gif It works great in "cheesecake", but I can't sell those either...

Thanks for responding though... I'm bound and determined to find a way around this, as silly as it sounds. icon_rolleyes.gif

I would definitly giv the cheesecake pudding recipes a try...............I belive they use bettercreme which is non-dairy. The recipe should be on cc. I know the oudding tastes great so with bettercreme it must taste like a moussy creamcheese without the dairy. HTH

If it requires refrigeration I can't use it. Can the cake be left out once filled?
