#84 Calling all Bakers: Runny frosting remedy required
June 12, 2011 § 15 Comments
I have written two posts on my blog titled with “Calling all bakers”. I have had such great advice and responses (thank you all kindly) that I figured I may as well use this outlet on my blog to try to find a remedy for an icing (problem) I created on Friday.
This icing was made for a particular purpose, which I will discuss in a later post, however the icing was a failure and yesterday I hastily reverted back to a classic buttercream in order to produce an icing that had any solidity to it and helped me finish my hen night creations (like I said, more on that later)!
So to my problem.
My cream cheese frosting is too runny. Even after a night in the fridge it didn’t set. For now, it is confined to my freezer in a hope that some amazing baker can tell me how to remedy it, simply because I hate to throw food out even when it is a runny, lemony, cream cheese, icing mess!
Or if not remedy it, suggest another use for it…
The approximate recipe I used was as follows (I say approximate as during my worry of it not setting I added a few more spoons of icing sugar).
200g cream cheese (full fat variety)
200g icing sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice
I simply popped it all in a bowl and beat it to death!
So bakers, do your worst? Suggestions or advice welcomed!
