Hi - I tried searching the forums but did not find anything on topic. I am making a hummingbird cake for my daughter's second birthday and want to cover it in cream cheese icing. But I also want to decorate it a bit (I'm 8 months pregnant so not too much!) so I will need to use some buttercream icing on top of it. I assume that will work fine but any advice/tips? Thanks!

I'm not sure, I've never done it before. Another solution is to add cream cheese to your buttercream.

It will work fine. But there is a "decorators cream cheese icing" in the recipe section that is very good tasting and very easy to decorate with. It tastes like cream cheese and buttercream mixed. HTH. Good luck!
