Hi everyone, i've been trying to read the thread but i've only managed to pg 130 at the moment! Some great advice...
Re: the cream cheese frosting - this is something i've been trying to research.. but i've only been finding mainly US regulations.
What i wanted to know is do you lovely bakers use cream cheese frosting quite happily without refrigerating it? I have a carrot cake wedding cake to do and I can't put it back in the fridge after i've covered it with fondant, so i was wondering if this would be ok to be left in the box in a cool area?
It will be picked up on the Thursday night before the wedding on Saturday, if that affects it.
The recipe i found was 450g icing sugar to 150g butter and 200g cream cheese - however i wasn't going to use this much cream cheese..
Any rules and regs in the UK which means I shouldn't do this?
Thanks in advance - off to catch up some more
