I was watching 'Amazing Wedding Cakes', and they're covering a cheesecake in buttercream. Now, I am a huge fan of good quality cheesecake. I have a to-die-for cheesecake recipe that I've made for years. I cannot imagine ruining that wonderful cheesecake taste with frosting of any sort. That is so nasty! Has anyone eaten this, or seen it? YUKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am watching that as well. But I assumed she was just putting a layer of icing on it since she is planning on covering the cheesecake with fondant! Will fondant stay put on just cheesecake?!? Either way... fondant covered cheesecake sounds interesting. icon_confused.gif

Why ruin a perfectly good cheesecake... Its kinda like mixing two similar flavors that just don't go together.... like oranges and chocolate.. both sweet, but you dont want to eat them together! Now I know I'm going to get responses saying that there are those chocolate oranges that you can buy.... yuck! cant mix 2 kinds of sweet... It's just wrong! LOL

They're putting buttercream on the cheesecake, and then fondant. I think it sounds dreadful. I admit to being a purist, but a good quality cheesecake needs NOTHING else.

I've seen this. I was researching how to fancify cheesecakes for a wedding and this is pretty common. I couldn't even begin to imagine what it would taste like and agree it sounds pretty gross. I came up with idea to surround the cake with a chocolate transfer, possibly do a circle on top too, or arrange irregularly broken chocolate with chocolate transfer designs on it. It would be nice and compliment the cheesecake. Unfortunately, I didn't have time. But yeah, can't imagine buttercream on cheesecake. Seems weird to me.

I'm with you. What a way to ruin a good cheesecake.

Yup! I too have a great Cheesecake recipe and had to make 2 grooms cakes out of them. Then I had to cover them with a cream cheese buttercream, and a fondant "G" for Greenbay Packers. It looked good, but at the reception, I only ate the cheesecake and not the frosting.

One of my friends covered one of her cheesecakes in was a NY style cheesecake. She torted it, filled it with strawberries and whipped cream and covered it with a thin layer of fondant. It worked for her...

In a catalog I seen a cheesecake covered in white chocolate and decorated like a gift, it was super cute. I think it was modeling chocolate that it was covered in. It was an 8in square cheesecake and it was $105 available for shipping. They had cupcakes and all kinds of goodies available for shipping too.

The puppy cake in my photos are two cheesecakes layered and stacked. I covered them in White Chocolate Cream Cheese frosting and it tasted great!. The frosting wasnt sweet and it actually complimented the cheesecake flavor. I was worried because the cheesecake is so good, I didnt want to ruin it, but it worked. I have heard of covering them in modeling chocolate, but havent tried it as of yet.

I have heard of it being done and hope to someday give it a try. This is the recipe that Kathyf uses to cover her cheesecakes and from what I've seen everything she makes is really good. 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-comicon_surprised.gifffice: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.

That is the recipe I used. It was very good, it crusted and wasn't to bad to do. You just have to keep the cheesecake cold.

Tesso, I sent the recipe via PM to you. I tried to post it, but it must be longer than allowed, as I couldn't view the lines at the bottom while I was typing.

I've seen cheesecakes covered in chocolate, at Neiman Marcus. Don't mind the prices!

They're all cheesecakes.

I guess I'm just a purist when it comes to cheesecake. If it's a GOOD quality cheesecake, that's the flavor I want. I'd think any addition would detract from that flavor. But I know not everyone thinks that way.
