Hello all! I have someone that wants the Boston Red Sox logo on a cheese cake. My first thought was to cover the cheese cake in fondant and decorate it from there but after doing some searches I found fondant and cheese cake don't really get along! Any suggestions?
I've seen other questions like this posted & I'd love to know if anyone's tried it.
Otherwise, I think using colored piping gel would hold up best.
One time I made a cheesecake w/ a big decorated sugar cookie placed on top. I wish I had a picture.
Would an FBCT of the logo work on cheesecake?
Using buttercream would also work. You just need to get your outline of the logo on first then fill in with colored buttercream. Some may not like something as sweet and rich like buttercream on a cheesecake but it will work for the design and some actually do like the taste.
since frosting doesn't really go with a cheesecake, would an edible image work or colored chocolate?
I believe this website uses chocolate paper of some sort:
I made a cheesecake for my DD birthday and I covered it in dark chocolate ganache, then decorated it with white icing...went with a brown & white theme. It was yummy.
Thanks for the replies. Do you think it would work if I made the logo from fondant and allow it to dry then just lay it on the top instead of covering the whole cake?
OK so I decided to go with the fbct. Keep your fingers crossed! I will post pictures when it is done.
I made this one.. It is a baked NY style cheesecake, I made a dam around the top rim and filled with cherry filling then topped the cherry filling with cream cheese icing. Refrigerated overnight..I then covered it and decorated with MMF. The fondant was put on about 30 min before the party and the cake was all eaten within an hour so there were no refrigeration issues with the fondant.. although I have refrigerated one with the fondant on it (the leftovers) with no problem.
JamieAnn - that is adorable! Glad to see we can use fondant on cheesecake, I think I'll be doing something like this very soon
I worked in a cheesecake bakery and we always did just a bc type of icing on our cakes because they had to be in the fridge and it was easier than trying to do fondant. I don't know her recipe but my boss would make this amazing cream cheese almond icing that worked like buttercream. It was amazing. Wish I had that recipe.
instead of buttercream, have you thought of doing a cream cheese icing instead for your FBCT?
How about whipped cream? I like to use whipped cream because adding buttercream will just make it taste like you don't want another peice. Whipped cream isn't overpowering and very light.
I decorate cheesecakes all the time....you can do whatever you want!
