I am working towards getting all my permits in order. I am very excited, but its a bit of a waiting game right now. So I am trying to get all my product issues in order. One of them is the cream cheese frosting for my cinnamon rolls. I can try making them without and use an icing, but I want to use cream cheese if possible. I found a dry cream cheese that is shelf stable on its own, but I am not sure if that’s the case if I add it to other ingredients. Any one have any idea? I see some CFO’s on here that sell cheesecake. I don’t see how that is possible under the CFO law. Are they using the dry powder?
Liz, I make buttercream frosting for my cupcakes using Shortening and Cream Cheese Emulsion from LorAnns. In my opinion and my customers it tastes like cream cheese frosting. I’m not sure what your recipe is but could you use say powdered sugar, the cream cheese emulsion and water to make the icing? Or something like that. By the way, it smells horrible when you open the bottle but actually tastes could once it’s made.
