From Super Rich Cream Cheese Icing Recipes to a Low Fat Dieters Dream
A mixed bag of delicious ideas for Cream Cheese Icing Recipes. Starting with my favorite Cream Cheese with Heavy Cream. This mix of unique icings includes a low calorie Maple Syrup version.
Check out this SUPER easy, light version of the traditional carrot cake frosting in the eHow.com frosting video series that I am presenting below. The heavy cream is whipped up in a separate bowl until stiff and then folded gently into the whipped cream cheese, sugar and vanilla.
The results of this simple icing are, fluffier texture and a deliciously rich creamy taste. Use it as a filling in wedding cakes, as a topping for cupcakes or on an all occasion cake.
If you like Maple Syrup and if you are on a diet why not try this recipe out. There is no reason why you can't enjoy a lower fat treat once in a while, right? This would go so perfectly with my Carrot Cake recipe.
Chocolate and Cream Cheese is another great combo of flavors. Simply add either melted bittersweet or semi sweet chocolate to taste to your finished frosting and stir until completely mixed in. Or you can use sifted cocoa to make a very rich chocolatey filling/icing.
TIP: Add a touch of Almond extract for more depth of flavor.
The browned butter recipe is REALLY amazing. It's a new flavor sensation to me and I think you will love it especially with a chocolate layered cake.
The classic recipe (link below) with a squeeze of lemon can't really be beat for the carrot and banana tortes and even as a filling for your chocolate layers.
Try them all and let me know what you think. You can even send me your ideas if you want to get creative by adding a certain spice or flavoring. Hope to hear from you. You can contact me or use one of the forms throughout the website to send your ideas.
