Crusting Cream Cheese Frosting

Forum: Cakes & Cake Decorating

I am doing my first groom’s cake. The groom wants a three tiered cake! He also wants a red velvet cake but the idea of using cream cheese frosting in South Louisiana in June scares me to death. He wants the cake with frosting and fondant decorations, not covered in fondant. I am afraid that cream cheese frosting will be difficult to work with and that with our humidity and heat it will melt on me and my decorations slide right off! Thankfully the venue is indoors and air conditioned but I do have to get it there. Any suggestions of recipes or techniques would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Why do you have to use cream cheese frosting??
Why not use ganache or a stable buttercream?

I was planning on using a high humidity buttercream flavored with cream cheese flavored emulsion, but our local cake shop owner suggested I use a crusting cream cheese frosting instead. Just not sure that is wise…..

Try experimenting. Have fun :)

You can use ganache or merengue cream (I do not know exact name of merengue cream which consist of merengue and melted sugar at 120 degrees C). Also you can use refrigerator for delivery or just put some bags with ice around the cake box

You had the right idea to begin with, use that most stable buttercream recipe you can fine and flavor it with Lorann Cream Cheese emulsion. You can also make a great mock cream cheese frosting using white balsamic vinegar.

I concur with Sandra Smiley. Use the best stable icing you can find. And either add Lorann cream cheese flavouring/ emulsion or white balsamic vinegar. I can tell you I have used Lorann cream cheese in icing, and everyone thought it was cream cheese icing. Now the Lorann cream cheese emulsion doesn’t smell the greatest in the bottle. But it really does taste like cream cheese.
