I've never made a red velvet cake, but am making one this week with cream cheese frosting. What kind of cream cheese frosting do I need to use in order to be able to cover it in MMF? Does cream cheese frosting have to be refrigerated? TIA
This needs to be refrigerated, but it works well http://cakecentral.com/recipes/4153/decorators-cream-cheese-frosting
Thanks for the recipe! Have you used it under MMF? My worry is needing to refrigerate the cake after it's decorated--any tips?
This is the recipe I use. It crusts nicely and is easy to work with.
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
16 ounces cream cheese, softened
3 1/2 pounds powdered sugar
1 tablespoon pure vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
Thanks for the recipe!
Does anyone have any info. on covering cc frosting with mmf? I'm worried about refrigeration and what it will do to the fondant???? Thanks!
This is a crusting cream cheese frosting. Works the same as a regular crusting butter cream it will be fine covered in fondant.
From what I was told by the creator of this recipe is that it doesn't need to be refrigerated that the sugar ratio preserves the frosting. I usually always refrigerate my cakes because I use fillings that require refrigeration.
I used Edna De La Cruz' crusting cream cheese recipe for my 60th birthday book cake in my gallery. It crusts pretty well & it tastes yummy! Her website is designmeacake.com
