I tend to buy cream cheese when it is on sale. Usually I keep it in the fridge, but my mom told me it could be frozen. I took some out of the freezer one day and put it in the fridge to thaw overnight before making some cream cheese frosting. Then I stored the container of frosting in the fridge until this morning.
Baked a carrot cake for the family reunion today and when I went to ice it with with the cream cheese frosting, it is very soft...I mean, really soft and starts to slide down the sides of the cake!! I have made cream cheese frosting and iced cakes for years; do you think it is acting this way because something changed in the cream cheese once it was frozen??
Thank goodness it is just for family . Most of them won't even notice as long as I keep it refrigerated until serving time!
