Does anyone know if cream cheese BC can be iced smooth, as you would usual BC? I'm looking at Earlene's Cream cheese recipe.
Thanks!!

cream cheese icing is definitetly different to work with than regular buttercream. I personally struggle with it. I have done much better with is since I started adding a block of cream cheese to my regular buttercream recipe. There is a crusting buttercream recipe on here that is good... other than those two recipes... I stay away.. too hard for me to smooth, etc...

I used this recipe the other day, it tasted great, smoothed well, and crusted nicely.
It comes from
www.sugaredblog.blogspot.com/2008/12/few-of-my-favorite-things.html

Kathy Finholt's Crusting Cream Cheese Icing:

1 cup butter
1/2 cup Crisco
16 oz. cream cheese
3 lbs powdered sugar
1 T vanilla
1/2 tsp salt

Kathy says:

Mix on low speed for a couple of minutes.
This makes a fairly stiff icing if you use 3-1/2 lb. Powdered sugar. For a softer one you can use 3 lbs. of powdered sugar. Can stay out of fridge for several days. Freezes well.

I have used the crusting cream cheese recipe from this site and have been able to smooth it out just fine.
