AI know lots of people use the whipped buttercream recipe and I believe it is known as charlotte's whipped buttercream. I love it but was wondering if anyone ever tried her cream cheese version where she actually omits one cup of shortening and replaces it with 2 , 8 oz blocks of cream cheese. Besides that the recipe is exactly the same as the regular whipped buttercream. Sure would like to know if anyone had success with this version before I make it. Thanks

I too am interested in seeing if anyone can give an answer to this.  I recently tried the regular icing recipe and loved it! All of my customers tried it on various goodies the last 2 weeks and they have said it is terrific. A neighbor said it tasted like an icing that an old bakery in her home town used to make. She said it brought back great childhood memories.   I hope someone can answer this for us. :smile:

AI have not tried Charlottes cream cheese version. However I have made Leah's version of Charlottes, and added cream cheese to [I]that[/I]. I don't use straight hi-ratio, I use half butter though. It got good reviews.
