In the recipe section on here there is a crusting cc frosting that is really good. I suppose if you're using premade then add some powdered sugar.

I love this recipe!! I got it off of Edna's website and it is my new favorite buttercream!!! Very tasty and yes it crusts!!!

Crusting Creamcheese Buttercream


1/2 cup of shortening
1/2 cup (one stick) unsalted butter @ room temp
1 8oz bar cream cheese @ room temp
1 tblsp white vanilla extract
2 lbs shifted powder sugar
1/2 tsp salt


Cream together shortening, butter, and cream cheese until nice and smooth. Add vanilla into mixture and combine. Sift together sugar and salt, and slowly add to shortening, butter & cheese mixture. Make sure that all sugar is incorporated. Enjoy!

*If to stiff of a consistency use less sugar but all the salt or gradually add milk to make the perfect consistency!

I have used the recipe that luvbuttercream posted. It tastes good and crusts nicely. It is also in the recipe section under 'decorators cream cheese frosting'

This recipe crust very well and also holds up great in heat and humidity.
It also doesn't have to be refrigerated.

Kathy Finholdt's crusting cream cheese buttercream is all I use: The primary fat is butter, so of course it is delicious. Add a little bit of orange or lemon zest for an even better flavor. It does not need to be refrigerated.
