That sounds like a great recipe. You can pipe with it, but can you make roses with it? I need a cream cheese frosting that I can make decorations with. Mine seemed stiff enough until I added color, then no amount of powdered sugar is making it the right consistency.
This was my first time making cream cheese frosting. Your recipe instructions were simple to understand. My frosting turned out amazing and tasted fantastic! I put it on red velvet cake. My hubby specifically asked for this cake. He was astounded with the flavor. This recipe is a 'keeper'. Thanks for sharing it!
Is it 4 TBS butter or 8 TBS? 8 TBS would be a whole stick right?
THANK YOU for this recipe!! I made it with your ratios- but quadrupled the recipe- and it was great! (to chellebell70- it is 4 tbs not 8 tbs- it works just as it is written- I just doubled each and made it 1 stick of butter, 1 pkg of cream cheese, and 10 cups of powdered sugar, etc.).
I have been trying to find a cream cheese frosting that will hold up and not wilt- this did the trick perfectly- and the meringue powder added a very nice texture that was great for piping. Plus it didn't dilute the cream cheese flavor and it wasn't overly sweet (despite the massive quantities of powdered sugar :) ).
How many cups does a single batch make? I am curious what size cake it can cover.
Please clarify the amount of butter in the recipe. You call for 8 Tbs, but that is a whole stick. Do you really mean 4 Tbs, for the 1/2 stick you mention? Thank you.
can't wait to try this recipe! will the frosting hold up on the sides of a cake that is out a room temp for several hours? thank you!
