Made my normal IMBC and thought I would try making Cream Cheese IMBC...I whipped up my room temp cream cheese until it was smooth and started adding it in a spoon at a time till I got the flavor right. I let it mix for maybe a minute after I had it added in and it turned into slop! It is like thick pancake batter now....Can this be saved? I thought about just letting it continue to whip and maybe it would come back? Anyone have experience with this?
I know "FromscratchSF" has a tutorial on her cream cheese smbc. Take a look at it and see what she says. I don't have it on hand but when I find the link I will post it for you.
FromScratch knows her stuff. I'm an experienced baker, but I plan to follow it exactly. I think this is valuable information for those who prefer cooked icings.
well I did whip the cc first but I added it to the frosting instead of the other way around. it was great at first. I decided I would put it in the fridge for a while to see if it would firm up some and it did! I took it out and rewhipped it and it came back. it is still softer than normal but fine for the cupcakes I am making. so Yay! will definately try her way next! Thank you!
