I'm pretty sure this would go under this topic as it addresses BC and fondant.....
I made my very first Hummingbird cake and it's now time to frost it. I want to cover it in fondant. I'm about to make my BC and I know Hummingbird cakes are traditionally covered in Cream Cheese BC. My question is: would it be too much to then cover it in a Cream cheese fondant? Kansaswolf recently posted her recipe in a topic entitled Cream Cheese based fondant recipe!
What do you all think? Is this cream cheese overkill?
Any opinions? Please.
I need to begin making the fondant soon if I'm going to do this.
I dont think it would be...
I'm sorry, I am not familiar with Hummingbird cake.
Thanks for the opinion, Edna.
Tiptop Birthday Buddy, here's the recipe I used> http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=387218
Apparently it's a traditional Southern cake, but when I heard of it (from one of the contestants of Food Network's Engagement Cake Challenge) I looked it up to try it as it sounds scrumptious. I can't wait to taste it!
It is a VERY traditional and delicious cake...
I would do a light vanilla fondant instead of cream cheese fondant AND cream cheese icing...do the cream cheese icing.. not a crusting one though (or at least I wouldn't
One of my best sellers
is it even possible to have too much cream cheese?...have you seen the commercials cream cheese come from heaven!
put it on there!
I love hummingbird..And I am a big fan of creamcheese..so my humingbird is always done with cream cheese unless someone ask for something else..Like littlecake said...is it even possible to have to much cream cheese?...
I think though cream cheese bc AND cream cheese fondant would be a bit much for me .. but that is JMO
Thank you all for your opinions!
I'm going to see if I have the time for the cream cheese fondant and possibly give it a try. The cake is for family and my daughter has been known to eat cream cheese on a spoon. To me that is just a bit much! But I did make the BC and decided to be a little creative and made a white chocolate cream cheese BC. lol It's heavenly! Mmmmmm
So time will tell........
GO FOR IT.
I tired the white chocolate cream cheese icing, it does not taste like cream cheese, but it is absolutely DELISH!
I am trying the cream cheese fondant recipe here with in the next day or so to cover a cake I am making ...
I think you will be surprised at how good it will taste!
Cream cheese overkill?
I didn't even know there was such a thing!
Sugar_Plum_Fairy.. I never heard of white chocolate cream cheese BC. Can you share the recipe ? Or where to find it ? Thanks !
Thanks Grace ! Sound yummmy and simple to !!! For some reason I was thinking it would be real involved!
By the way, I just wanted to update in case anyone was interested; I did eventually try this combination. What a great combination it turned out to be! Wow! It wasn't only me who thought this. My DH, kids, in-laws and s-i-l's friends thought so also (they seemed to be sincere and not just saying it to be nice).
The only warning is that the fondant is difficult to work with.......but, oh, so delicious. I highly recommend this flavor pairing!!
