So I am making a 3 tier wedding cake for my sweet niece. Her wedding is October 19th of this year and is outside. So my question is do I have to use professional icing or regular. She wants cream cheese icing and I can't find it, only found it in the regular icing. But I don't want it to melt outside either. So what should I do? Thanks

You can use cream cheese icing.   Regular icing is professional icing!  Do a search for cream cheese icing recipes, you will find many!


How hot is it in October where you live?  

Can you refrigerate it until it's put out on the table?


I don't know if it would melt, others will help on this site!

Allison..there is cream cheese/butter cream recipe here on CC that you may want to look at.   It's the best of both worlds...but not a true cream cheese as you know it recipe.   I think it's called Decorator's Cream Cheese Icing...or something like that.   It has a lot of powered sugar in it, so the cream cheese taste is a little muted...but may your solution to a cream cheese/outdoor wedding.   Check it out.

Regular icing?


Professional icing?


I'm confused: I wasn't aware that icing accepted paychecks.

AAre you asking about pre-made icings, or recipes to make your own?
