I hope everyone has had a great week so far. I wanted to share with you an awesome recipe, which I am currently using for a cake. This recipe is a cream cheese frosting, but the cool thing about it is that it crusts just like a buttercream. With that being said if you wanted to use a frosting different than buttercream this would be it.
This recipe comes from Edna De La Cruz at Design Me A Cake. Edna is well known in the cake decorating world for her elaborate cakes and her beautiful sugar flowers.
