I know we are always looking for a good Chocolate Cream cheese frosting... Especially one that can be left out for a while.

Well I might have found an option. I recently had made up Indydebi's Buttercream (Chocolate) for a job... I also had some DH Homestyle Cream Chese Frosting. Figured i'd stretch the 2, and see what happens by mixing them both- for a personal cake & cake balls.

Actually it turned out well... unfortunately I just mixed what I had/to taste so I dont have ratios for you. (there was definately more of Indydebi's ... so i would err on the side of more of hers to DH)

I know that the store bought "cream cheese" frosting can taste fake... but i found that with Indydebi's BC mixed in, it seems to take away some of the "fakeness" if that makes sense. icon_wink.gif Also since her BC is crusting.... and the DH is not... it slows the crusting time down as well as soften the normal crusting texture. (I'im thinking a good texture for cupcakes icon_wink.gif )

Hope this is useful to you all. I'd love to hear back your thoughts, if anyone tries it, or uses it decorating/ under fondant.

Maybe we have something? icon_wink.gif
