So I am doing a couple of cakes this week. Have made a handful of cakes, all with MMF. Wanted to try cream cheese fondant, but read horror stories about it & how it's difficult to work with. I've decided to try it out now, but am scared, does anyone have any tips on how to work with this stuff?! Please & thanks!
PS Am also doing a purse 3-d cake, any tips for that?
I have never heard of cream cheese fondant but I have to say it does not sound good. Lorann Oils makes a cheesecake flavoring that you could flavor your mmf with. It doesn't taste like cheesecake or cream cheese to me but other people like it.
I would put cream cheese frosting under your fondant instead of using cream cheese fondant.
I have used it on a limited basis-just for accents, but I used the recipe post on CC by kansaswolf. I had a couple of questions and she replied very promptly. I'm sure she'd be happy to help. She said she does all of her cakes with it. I think I need a little more practice with it before I cover a whole cake with it. It is a little more sticky and tears a little bit easier than MMF, but it tastes fantastic!!
I haven't used or made a cream cheese fondant, but there a grocery store here in st louis that has a chocolate cake that is covered with a cream cheese fondant. It is really good and that is the only cake I buy from a grocery store bakery.
