I have a bride that wants a red velvet wedding cake with cream cheese frosting - 4 tiers. Because the cream cheese cant be smoothed, she asked if there was a product that can be put (or sprinkled?) over the frosting to give it a 'snow look'???
She wants a very elegant cake, its a winter wedding...any suggestions from the wonderful pro's at CC???
Thank you all so much for reading this - any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated
Why can't the cream cheese frosting be smoothed? If you use a recipe like this one you can use the paper towel method. Kathyfs Cream Cheese Frosting
1 cup butter
1/2 cup Crisco
16 oz. cream cheese
3 1/2 lbs powdered sugar
1 T vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
Mix on low speed for a couple of minutes.
If you use clear vanilla in both the color will be a perfect match for <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns =

when a couple wants part regular cake and part cheesecake for the tiers.
This makes a fairly stiff icing. For a softer one you can use 3 lbs. of powdered sugar. You could sprinkle some white edible glitter .
