Hi everyone, I found a great frosting here that was posted by pansy-girl on Jul 31. My question is anyone have any ideas about adding cream cheese to this. I have a wedding on Halloween my bride and groom like the frosting but wants the cream cheese. If you have an answer for me I would love to hear from everyone. icon_smile.gif

I don't have an answer for that, but I can recommend the Decorator's Cream Cheese Frosting recipe here on CC. It's delicious and it pipes beautifully!!

Ugh. Cream cheese frosting is a pain. It's very difficult to get it smooth. Many decorators will only use it as a filling. I, personally, only use it on cakes that are going to be "homestyle" frosted (swoops and swirls of icing with the spatula), not decorated. PLUS it must be kept in the refrigerator, so the cake cannot be set up until just before the reception.

I also use Decorator Cream Cheese Frosting on this website, and LOVE it. Easy to work with, and people love the taste. It is a real cross between bc AND cc frostings.
