Hey everyone. Since I don''t speak spanish I cant post this on the spanish fourm but could use some help. Right now I am on vacation in Costa Rica and one of the women at the B&B that we are staying at is taking cake decorating lessons. What is a good icing to use where the heat and humidty is high? The icing she made was cream cheese based but seems very runny for this climate. I dont think they have Crisco down here so what should they use? Also cake recipes from scratch for this area? The one she made was very dense....not fluff to it at all. Hope you can help. I am planning on going through all my cake stuff once home and send her stuff to help her.
Sent a pm to Marynes she is from Costa Rica I think that she can help you
thank you. I did look in the spanish forum and saw a recipe for icing for ? puerto Rico...it looked like they use manetca (sp) but I thought that was lard...maybe not.
I was looking for something else and found this topic, maybe it is too late and you dont need any help now but let me know if you need to know about the tradicional icing we use in costa rica.
Sorry I didn't get it sooner!!!
Yes I would still love to know what icing you use. The one I tasted was a cream cheese but it seemed runny. Any help you can offer is appreciated. The lady that made the cake works at a Bed and Breakfast in Grecia. She works for La Terraza. I will send the info on to her via her employer. Where in Costa Rica are you?
