Hi everyone,

I really need a good recipe for a cream cheese icing.  If non dairy, that would be awesome.  I would like to avoid having to put it in the fridge.  I need something that will hold up nicely under fondant for a red velvet tier.

Well if you are using cream cheese it will be a little hard to make it non dairy, just saying.

I know.  I did make a tester cake using a base wilton buttercream icing with a cream cheese and also butter flavoring.  The feedback was that the icing was good, but not overly rich.  


Personally, I can't eat cream cheese icing, makes me sick. ;(   So, honeslty I really don't know how rich it should taste.  Not sure if i can achieve that with a nondairy version.


I can't put fondant in my fridge.  It's too hot in TN and causes too much condensation.  Plus this layer will have a gumpaste plaque on in its side.

even soy cream cheese has to be kept refrigerated--there's a shelf stable cream cheese filling in a sleeve--but it's not icing-


you could also use a cream cheese flavoring in some regular buttercream-- lorann oils makes one
