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. :)
ADo u happen to have the cream cheese recipe you use so I can compare it to mine?
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
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.
Enjoy..it'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!
Thank you for the recipe!
