Hello,

I am making a giant red velvet cupcake. Everyone says it should have creamcheese frosting on it becasue they go well together. I've never used it before and i'm wondering what the best recipe would be for it. I am making large roses using tip 1M over the whole top of the cupcake and i'm worried that creamcheese frosting is slippery and will just slide off. lol Anyone have any experience with doing one of these and having it stay on the cupcake. lol

Thanks!!!

Check out "Decorators Cream cheese Icing" recipe. It's great for frosting and decorating. Use a regular cream cheese icing recipe for the filling though.

I totally agree with LeeBD. The Decorators Cream Cheese Icing is the BEST for decorating. Although it doesn't taste as decadent as what we think of as Cream Cheese icing, it has a very nice, pleasant taste with a light taste of cream cheese. Don't try piping the regular cream cheese icing.... its too soft and adding more PS to stiffen it up doesn't work.
