Hi. I am making a pumpkin spice cake. I was going to use a pumpkin cream cheese icing like the kind that goes on just a pumpkin cake (decorating not considered). Can I use an edible image on that soft an icing? Should I change to another icing? Does it have to be more of a buttercream cream cheese or should I just go with buttercream?

There is a decorators cream cheese in the recipes section here that I've used with an edible image and it came out fine. You might be able to use it for your recipe as well.

Thank you. I do see one called Crusting Cream Cheese.

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.
This one is wonderful and it crusts.

I know that you will not have any trouble with it at all if you are using our Premium Icing Sheets.
