Have you ever added cocoa to this recipe? I need dark brown crusting cream cheese frosting...
How long can this icing sit out without refridgeration? I'm delivering a large cake that may be too big for the client's refridgerator. Just wanting to know how long before the party it will be able to sit out if it is indoors.
Excuse my ignorance, but what is popcorn salt, and where would I purchase it?
Sorry, I did not realize I had any comments. I haven't tried cocoa in it and I have let it sit out for up to 4 hours. The sugar to cream cheese ratio is so high that I do not worry about it. It has sat on my counter for up to 5 days and hubby has eaten it with no ill effects! You can find white popcorn salt in the popcorn area at the stores.
Made this recipe yesterday and I love love love that way it tastes (and so did everyone else!) but it really didn't crust at all for me so it was very difficult to get smooth. I followed the recipe exactly except I used regular salt instead of popcorn salt. Could that have affected it?
You should call it Crusteena's cream cheese icing! ;)
LaurenBaker, I use Sweetex and have never not had it crust so I'm wondering what type of shortening you used. I really wish we would get e-mail notifications when people respond to these recipe threads!! Sorry!
