I have not done cakes in a long time, but have been asked to do a birthday cake for someone who loves red velvet cake...I know that cream cheese frosting is the choice for red velvet, but how do I decorate with it??? I have only decorated with buttercream and I know that cream cheese frosting can be stickier, so I feel that it will be harder to decorate with, right??? I am really not sure what to do! Could I decorate with buttercream and it be good???
If you prefer a crusting recipe then give this one a try:
A crusting cream cheese frosting can be used to frost and decorate with. I've found that the frosting smooths better using the 'hot spatula' method.
Place the spatula in a a container of hot water to heat the spatula blade. (I use a glass that's tall enough to cover the spatula blade.) Wipe it dry and glide the heated spatula over the frosting. Clean any frosting from the spatula and repeat.
thank you both!!
If you want a Cream Cheese without buttercream do...
1 cup of butter
1 8oz pkg cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 lbs powdered sugar
It turns of really nicely.
