Yes...in the msg I sent her I explained the meringue, the american BC, french BC, and the other flour one. I explained what you had told me so she had all the information to make her decision on what she wants. Being I only use the american BC it doesn't really matter which one she wants, plus I like to expand my recipe book. icon_smile.gif

Well she is a huge frosting fan so she said that whichever will go best with the red velvet cake, to do that one.

Which out of all mentioned in this thread, in your opinion, would go best? I've never used anything but cream cheese with red velvet so I really don't know. I also need to be able to make flowers, roses, and do writing with it. There are no other decor or borders with this icing.

Thank you for all your help!

Without a doubt, it can be done in the meringue buttercreams...all of it.

There is a cream cheese meringe buttercream recipe floating about somewhere that had gotten RAVE reviews...I'll have to look.

Folk around here swear by cream cheese on Red Velvet.

I have no preference...I truly love it all...I'm no help there, sorry.

Would you consider making the decorations with a different type of icing? one with which you're more familiar/comfortable ...

Alright good to know.
I definately won't be doing all of the decor in creamcheese. I tried that before and it was a disaster...way too soft.
Yes I could do the decor in something different, as long as they go/taste good together.

Okay. Cut up 3 1/2 cups butter into 1 tblsp chunks (don't have to be exactly 1 tblsp chunks). I used 1 cup of whites, 2 cups of sugar combined in the mixer bowl and stirring constantly while the bowl rested over a pot of water, cooked to approximately 160 (over 150, not quite to 160). Removed from heat and beaten on 8 on the KA until stiff. Then, added 2 tablespoons vanilla...beat until well combined while scraping bowl. One chunk at a time, added 1/2 the butter. Then, just pulling off chunks at a time, added all of an 8 ounce block of cream cheese...scraped bowl periodically...followed by the remaining butter chunks, again, one at a time. Beat long time more...like a few more minutes.

I used the wire beater through the entire process.

If it goes sloppy on you, chill it for a bit then continue beating.

If I were to make it again, I may consider adding a bit more sugar.

It's rich, creamy, and incredibly delicious! I forgot to take the layers out...so they're thawing now. I will post images after I get them iced and decorated.

the results...it was about 85-90 degrees in my house today which had some effect (IMO) on the firmness of the icing...it seemed softer than regular smbc. I filled and crumb coated then placed the cakes (one red velvet, one strawberry...both 6"...2 layers each, split in two making 4 layers) into the freezer to firm up. removed them and final coated them. Placed remaining couple/few tablespoons of icing in decorating bag and placed in fridge and went outside for a break. Came in, removed bag from fridge and piped what roses (3, using 103) and a couple of buds and leaves.
I'm not sure (pull them back out of the deep freezer tomorrow to see what happens) how they'll do after they come to room temperature again.
Here's what I got...
