Cake Decorating Community - Cakes We Bake

Good morning,

I wanted to ask if anyone knows how to stabilize cream cheese?

I have an inquiry to individually box a red velvet cupcake w/ cream cheese icing.  My concern is how the cream cheese icing will hold up in a nice swirl!

The boxes will be a cool place indoors, but probably for a few hours before they are even eaten.

Any thoughts or tried recipes?

Any help would be great!

Here's a recipe I basically use Mizztry. I usually make flour icing and add cream cheese. But I stumbled upon this recipe. Used it for my last all bc covered red velvet cake. It was a big hit. It's a bit of work & planning, but not hard. Best thing, it's not cloyingly sweet like most cream cheese icings. Give it a wirl.

Thanks June! Did you try piping with it at all? Just wondering how it holds...

Also was your cake left outdoors?

Yes....I'ved piped with it. I forgot to say that I also add 1 cup of icing sugar and a heaping tblsp of meringue powder. Helps ii crust and "set". And as far as being outside, no cake was not. I would try and find a shady spot to place it. Is this for summer ?? I would keep cake indoors until the last possible moment, if you can, if not...perhaps sitting on a cold slab of some sort.

I can't elaborate much on what June has already said, but one thing I will add is that it is important to use a really full fat cream cheese - it has more substance than the lighter versions.

Thanks Katy. Should have mentioned that. No light cream cheese....full fat for sure.
