I'm needing to make a red velvet cake, but dont know, when I should make the cream cheese frosting? How soon can I lay fondant over the cream cheese frosting?? The cake needs to be done Saturday by 6! Talk about a time crunch!!
You can use a cream cheese butter cream that's what I use. Frost and decorate as you would using regular butter cream. Doesn't require refrigeration. I would make the cake the day before if possible. I have to carve a 3 D dog out of Red Velvet cake this weekend what fun. I will be using a vanilla mousse and this cream cheese frosting and covering in MMF.
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.
Thank you sooo much!!! I'll try that tonight!
Good luck with the red velvet cake.
I have to do a cake with a social security check on it.
