I hope the description makes sense-- I have seen tons of cakes where the design is a simple swirly rose along the sides and top of the cake. All of them seem to have been made with buttercream frosting. Has anyone tried this design using cream cheese frosting? Did it work?

Here is the link to an awesome sample of the design I am talking about (I hope this works....)

Thanks to I AM BAKER, who is the creator of this work of art ...

I don't see why it wouldn't? It might be helpful if the cream cheese icing was a crusting icing-and a little stiff. Other than that--go for it! Any cake would be yummy with that much cream cheese on it!

This is a recipe for a crusting cream cheese icing that Ive seen floating around this site in the forums. People are constantly looking for it and it wasnt in the recipes, so I thought I would post it. Its not mine, Kathy Finholt from Iowa is the original creator.

Crusting Cream Cheese Icing
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
1 pound cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon clear vanilla extract
3 1/2 pounds sifted confectioners sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cream butter, shortening, cream cheese and extracts. Gradually add confectioners sugar and salt. Beat on low speed until nice and creamy. If you want whiter icing, try to use butter without dyes available at most health food stores.
This recipe is for a stiff consistency. For a thinner consistency, use 3 pounds of powdered sugar instead.
If you want a very smooth cake, let the cake sit for 15 minutes after icing. Then smooth with the non-printed side of a Viva paper towel.

Yes, cream cheese icing does lovely with this technique. I have used regular cream cheese icing several times. There is a picture of on in my gallery.
