Has anyone had luck using mmf to cover a cake which has cream cheese frosting on it? Is there a particular recipe that I should use etc. I made my sons birthday cake last year with mmf but I used chocolate buttercream. So this would be my 2nd cake using mmf just want to have a game plan so its not a disaster

I've used cream cheese and buttercream under mmf. You CAN refrigerate a mmf covered cake..I always keep mine in the fridge. I crumb coat, refrigerate, frost, refrigerate then cover with mmf and refrigerate. :)

Sure  - I combined a couple recipes I had so it's more of a cross between buttercream and cream cheese. Not super cream-cheesy, you may want to add more cream cheese if that's what you're going for.

8oz cream cheese - softened

1 cup butter - softened

2t vanilla

2lb bag powdered sugar


Cream butter and cream cheese until fluffy, add vanilla and ps

If it's too thick, I add a little milk to thin it down to the consistency I need.'s one of my most requested recipes -very versatile, I add fresh strawberries to it and it's also good if you substitute 1t peppermint extract for the vanilla -- with chocolate cake -- OH.MY. It's like a junior mint! icon_biggrin.gif
