Wilton Cream Cheese Buttercream

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 


I know many people have their own cream cheese buttercream recipes but I was wondering if it would be possible to turn the Wilton Class buttercream recipe into cream cheese and what additions/subtractions I would have to make to the recipe


This is the recipe

1 cup solid vegetable shortening
1 teaspoon Wilton Flavor (vanilla, almond or butter)
7-8 teaspoons milk or water
1 lb. confectioners' sugar

pinch of salt (optional)


I have my final class next week and I made a red velvet cake for it, I would like to fill and ice it with cream cheese frosting and as a beginner I really don't want to deviate from the classic recipe I was given as so far it has worked so well for me and I can trust that it will crust so well. Suggestions on adding the cream cheese, please?

Edna De La Cruz's cream cheese icing recipe is probably the closest to what you're looking for. You can find it at

Btw, if you like wilton's "buttercream" (icing is not buttercream unless it has butter in it), you'll love Edna's buttercream recipe. It behaves similar to wilton's icing but tastes so much better and can actually be called buttercream.

Edna's is my go to recipe. It is very tasty and easy to make, just make sure you follow her directions closely so you do not get air into it...beat on low in your mixer with a paddle attachment.

Please try this c/c recipe from carmijok. She was so gracious to share it. I like it better than what i have always used. It is much sturdier. Please do not add more powder sugar or crisco, etc. and take away from the cream cheese taste . Sometimes i use vanilla bean paste. sometimes i use lime flavoring for my lime cakes, etc. This is truly a great tasting recipe and it WILL CRUST. hth
