Yep, you're totally right. I think I'll make a cream cheese frosting and combine it with SMBC. I might add a bit of the flavouring anyway, just for shizzles, and to make me feel I haven't totally wasted my money. LOL! Actually, I might also use the flavouring when I make my MFF to cover. It might be a nice complement to the carrot cake / cream cheese of the cake.
The dude (at the cake supply shop, of all places) made me paranoid by going on and on and on about how, if I supply a cream cheese item, and the client leaves it out for four days and gets sick, it's still my fault for being the original supplier.
But later I was thinking about it, and realising how ridiculous it is. I mean, if that's the case, couldn't I just then shift the blame back to my supplier. 'But judge - the supermarket sold it to me in the first place! They shouldn't be selling stuff that can spoil!'
Anyway - I shouldn't listen to randoms in shops about this sort of stuff.
