    Hi there

    I am so glad i came across your website! your cupcakes are absolutely beautiful.

    I love to bake for my family and recently made a red velvet cake for my mother’s birthday, but the cream cheese icing was a runny consistency – so disappointing! (I used the Magnolia Bakery recipe) 🙁 How to you get your cream cheese icing to be stiff enough to pipe? I have seen some recipes call for vegetable shortening in order to make a crusting buttercream – is that what i did wrong?

    Thank you so much for your time

    Hey Liezl,
    I’m afraid I can’t give away my secrets- it took hours of expensive experimentation to perfect my cream cheese icing!
    I can tell you I do not use margarine (AKA shortening) in mine. Like I did, you’ll have to keep trying recipes until you find the one that works for you.
    Or you could buy mine… 😛
    Good luck!
