What am I doing wrong....I have tried three different cream cheese icing recipes and they always are soupy!!!
What am I doing wrong!!! I love other peoples frosting and am tired of throwing away good $$ when I cant even make a shell boarder out of it!
Anyone have an idiot proof recipe?
did you try this one? http://cakecentral.com/recipes/4153/decorators-cream-cheese-frosting
this is my favorite cream cheese icing. It works just like a crusting buttercream
The cream cheese recipe all my people want is the basic one.
1 8oz pkg cream cheese
1 stick butter, 8 tbsp
2 tsp vanilla
very fine salt to taste
1lb pound of powdered sugar, sifted to get 3 3/4 cups of powdered sugar
Make sure you are using the block cream cheese in the box - not the soft cream cheese in the tub.
Oh Thank you so much, I can't wait to try them! I was near my breaking point of cream cheese hysteria! Lol, I said "Yes, I'd love to make your special cake"......... to three cakes and just noticed they all are due on the same day, all with cream cheese frosting!! (umm 1 cake can take me 2 to 3 stressful days!!
I gotta do it, So I wanted to get ahead of the game and be prepared and organized! These recipes will be a life saver I'm sure!
Question about "room temp" or "softened" butter and Cream cheese. How long do you let it sit out? Was wondering if mine were too soft to start with?
Also is sweet butter the same as salted butter?
Thank you all so much!!!
I have learned the hard way... if you overbeat cream cheese frosting it gets sticky and soupy and can not be recovered!!! I leave it out overnight, but in Virginia this time of year, my house is pretty cold and it doesn't get that soft. I always beat the cream cheese for a minute, scrape down, beat 30 more seconds and then I add smbc until it's the "right" taste. I don't like the crusting kind and this makes it really easy for me. It is also easier to control the sweetness this way.
I've got two stacked cakes in my gallery done with this type of cream cheese frosting- I've gotten nothing but compliments on the taste!
