Hi there! Im kinda new to the world of cake making having started to make birthday cakes for friends and family!

I want to make some cupcakes only I do not like the taste of butter cream. Is there another recipe that can be suggested that has a similar consistancy and can be worked in the same way as butter cream?

Many thanks!! *^_^*

For my icing I alter the decorator cream cheese icing on this website, essentially I use (about) 1/2 c butter, 1/2c tenderflake (or crisco), 250g cream cheese, 4-6 cup icing sugar (depending on the consistency I need), and anywhere from two tablespoons to 1/4 cup milk or cream (again depending on the consistency I need)---there is a minimal cream cheese flavour to it
