I once tried to use cream cheese icing under fondant and it didn't turn out well. It's like the icing melted? It was a mess! Is there a cream cheese icing recipe that I can use under fondant? This bride REALLY wants cream cheese icing!
I have heard horrible stories about using CC under fondant. I would try a CC flavoring and add it to buttercream. I have read that LoAnns makes an excellent CC flavoing.
Oh I hate to hear this!! I have a wedding cake in 2 weeks that I planned on using cream cheese buttercream under fondant!! Hoping someone comments and says this is possible! =-)
Okay, I'm going to go with the cc flavoring then. The last thing I want is a big mess on her special day! Thank you!
When doing Red Velvet (or some other cream cheese buttercream vehicle) under fondant, I always let my client know that the cake will be FILLED with the cream cheese, however for stability reasons, I will cover it in either SMBC or a ganache.
Never had anyone question it. People would rather see a standing finished product than obsess over the need for all cream cheese.
