I want to cover a cake in cream cheese frosting (pretty think layer), but need to cover in fondant because of design reasons. I know the cream cheese will require refrigeration, but how will that affect the fondant? How long can I leave the cake out to serve- a women's event so could be out all evening!
This is my favorite cream cheese butter cream and it doesn't require refrigeration. 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 =
"urn:schemas-microsoft-comffice:smarttags" />Wilton's buttercream recipe. I use this to frost cheesecakes
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.
oh, thanks! This may seem crazy, but why would it not require refrigeration- it has cream cheese in it??
The sugar content preserves the cream cheese.
Thanks! I avoid filling that need refrigeration but had a request for a cream cheese filling. This was exactly what I came looking for!
