Cream cheese

Cheese cream is a creamy cheese mass that is used to soak cakes, flatten cakes and decorate the dessert surface. In the preparation of cheese cream use soft curd cheeses, as well as cottage cheese. The cream turns out to be quite dense, holds its shape well, has a delicate creamy taste, it can be painted with food colors and add various flavoring accents.

Cooking Recipes:

Cream cheese was used in the confectionery business not so long ago, but has already managed to gain popularity among consumers and culinary specialists. It is cooked quickly, does not require special skills, it always turns out delicious, and in desserts (cakes) it manifests itself in the best way. The editors of “Fast Recipes” recommends preparing a cream cheese for cake using a selection of proven cooking options.

So, continue the recipe

First, put the cheese in the bowl of the mixer and stir with the mixer at the slowest speed so that the cheese becomes soft.

Then add cream, vanilla and icing sugar, mix everything again at low speed until smooth.

Now you can beat at high speed. Whipping time depends on the power of your mixer. My 1000 watts, I whipped 5 minutes at 6th speed.

Cheese and cream mass will increase in volume by 2 times, it will become airy and at the same time dense and will easily stick on the whisk of the mixer.

You do not need to whip anymore. Cream cheese cheesecake is ready, now it can be used in business.

I decorated them with carrot cupcakes, made such cute hats.

This cream can and should be tested on other desserts. If you use it as a layer in a biscuit cake, then increase the amount of cream, and you do not have to use impregnation for the biscuit. Moisture cream will be enough.

If you want to level the cake with them, then, on the contrary, reduce the amount of cream relative to the cheese. For example: 80 grams of cream per 400 grams of cheese.

To decorate cupcakes, I took those proportions of ingredients that are listed in this recipe, which you are reading now.

Try, experiment and you will definitely get exactly the consistency of the cream that you need!

People often ask me whether it is possible to freeze cream cheese. I answer - it is possible, but with some reservations, because after defrosting your cream will be watery and exfoliate.

It is better to defrost it in the refrigerator for several hours, and then mix or beat again.

Therefore, I recommend freezing only that part of the cream that you have found to be in excess, and use it after thawing in the filling or layer of cake. Such a cream will not work for decoration.

I hope the recipe and my recommendations were useful to you.

I look forward to photos with your masterpieces, which you can attach in the comments below.

How to make Cheese Cream

You’ll need some very simple ingredients,

  • 300 grams of soft cream cheese (ideal for Mascarpone),
  • 100 grams of butter,
  • About 80 grams of powdered sugar
  • 1/3 teaspoon vanillin.

Important!So that you get the perfect cream. The oil should be soft. Take it out of their refrigerator, about an hour before cooking. But the cheese on the contrary, should be cold, get it immediately before whipping the cream mass.

General principles of cooking

  • The fat content of dairy products is selected to your taste, the main thing is that the cottage cheese is not too granular and dry. From soft curd cheeses for cream cheese, you can take both expensive: Mascarpone or Philadelphia, and their budget counterparts: President, Hohland or Viola

  • The cheeses are beaten with a mixer until splendid, adding sugar in the form of sand or powder, after which other components are gradually mixed in, which, like the sweetener, are introduced into the cream in small portions. The result depends not only on the exact observance of the prescription recommendations, but also on the quality and freshness of the products used. Of no small importance on the quality of whipping cream is the temperature of the products.
  • If the recommended temperature regime is not observed, the mass may not whip and will delaminate during cooking. The proportions of products may vary to some extent at the discretion of the confectioner. It is worth noting that cheese cream should contain a lot of cheese.
  • For the preparation of cheese cream, often butter or cream is added to the main products. Oil makes it more stable, and cream gives a more delicate creamy taste.
  • Cheese butter cream is used to decorate a finished cake. To create certain details of the decor, it is tinted with food colors, interfering with the finished cream.

Cooking cream

We start cooking with butter. Put it in a bowl or bowl from the mixer. Beat softened butter with a mixer at medium speed, about 2-3 minutes.

Next, we begin to pour powdered sugar into it. At the same time, we continue to beat. Add vanillin (or extract). Beat until the white mass increases in volume.

The last thing we add is cheese. We spread it in oil in parts (tablespoon). Using the mixer carefully, it is better to mix at low speeds.

Important! The cream must not be whipped, otherwise it will exfoliate, and carefully mixed until a completely homogeneous mass is obtained. If you worry that this cannot be done with a mixer, use a spatula to mix butter and cheese.

At first glance, the resulting Cheese cream may seem too liquid to you. This is not true. Put a bowl of cream in the refrigerator for a while, slightly cooled, it will acquire the necessary plasticity. It is in this state that it must be used for alignment and decoration.

Cheese cream and cheese cream at home


  • cream cheese - 300 g
  • butter - 100 g
  • icing sugar -60 - 80 g

Cooking method:

Place butter at room temperature in the mixer bowl. Beat it at an average speed of the mixer for 1-2 minutes, add powdered sugar to the butter, beat until whitening and increase in weight, add vanilla sugar. Then, without ceasing to whip, add cream cheese, little by little and whisk for a couple more minutes.

Put the cream in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. Cheese does not need to be whipped for a long time, if you have a spatula nozzle, then you can just mix it in whipped butter. If you beat for a long time, the cream will exfoliate.

If the cream went lumpy, then you either re-pulled the mass, or the technology for storing cheese was violated. It must not be frozen, and if it suddenly froze in the store, then the lumps will certainly be. Then such cheese must be pierced with a blender immersed until smooth.

In this cream, you can add both food paints and berry puree, to give an interesting shade.

Before decorating a cake or cupcakes, you need to get the cream from the refrigerator for about 15 minutes in order to keep it warm a little, otherwise the cream will be uncomfortable to work with and the edges of the roses will tear when planted on the cupcake.

Also, during leveling, the cake should be periodically sent to the refrigerator so that the layer solidifies a little.

This cream cheese can be frozen, and even cover them with mousse cakes, use under mastic or fill with colored glaze. Since butter is part of the composition, almost nothing happens to the cream.

Cream Cheese in Butter


  • peasant butter - a standard pack,
  • curd cream cheese - 560 g,
  • icing sugar - 180–220 g,
  • vanillin - a pinch

Cooking method:

A couple of hours before the expected preparation of the cream, we extract the cream cheese and butter from the refrigerator and allow the products to warm up and soften. Beat soft butter with a mixer to make it more magnificent, after which we mix powdered sugar and a pinch of vanillin into it.

In small portions, we start adding cottage cheese cream to the cream, each time mixing it gently until smooth at low mixer speeds, but not whipping. If desired, the cream can be filled with the desired color by adding food coloring.

Strawberry Cheese Cream

  • 100 grams of powdered sugar
  • 300 grams of cream cheese

We need to get the oil from the refrigerator, it must soften, in no case do we heat it in the microwave, we do not need such a liquid structure. Cut into small cubes, so it quickly becomes the condition I need.

We need to melt the chocolate, I drown it in the microwave in pulses of 20 seconds, each time mixing well. Melted chocolate should be cooled to room temperature.Put the butter and melted chocolate in a bowl of the mixer, and beat with powdered sugar for about 5 minutes.

It should turn out a lush, homogeneous mass without lumps. Then add cream cheese there. We mix our mass at medium speed, until unification. We remove the cream for 30 minutes in the refrigerator and you can get to work.

Cream Cheese with Cream


  • 300 g cream cheese
  • 100–150 ml of butter cream 33–35%
  • 100-120 g of powdered sugar
  • vanilla extract as desired (other extracts, liquors)

Cooking method:

Mix very cold cream cheese with icing sugar. Beat at medium speed until smooth. If you will use fat cream cheese, such as mascarpone, beat it at minimum speed and a very short time so that the cheese does not separate. Add 100-150 ml of very cold fat cream. Beat at medium speed.

Remove the cream for 30-40 minutes in the refrigerator to make it even more dense. Then we transfer it to a pastry bag and we can decorate cakes, cupcakes or other desserts. One serving of this cream is enough to decorate 12 cupcakes. This cream is prepared quickly and simply, it turns out pretty dense, holds its shape well and has a delicate creamy taste!

Choosing the right products for cream cheese

The key to an ideal dessert is quality and fresh products. For the manufacture of real cheese cream, only cream cheeses with a delicate creamy consistency and light taste notes of cream and cheese are suitable. The most common brands are “Philadelphia” and “Mascarpone”, they are prepared from natural cream and milk with additives that lead to coagulation.

Curd, cream cheese and Ricotta cheese, made on the basis of whey, are not used for production. Concentrated milk with sugar in recipes uses classic and boiled, made in accordance with GOST.

How to choose cream butter

The basis of a delicious cream is butter and, first of all, the final look and texture of the dish depends on its quality.

  • First of all, choose the freshest oil. Be sure to check the production date and expiration date of the product. Also buy oil that is stored in the store under proper conditions, and not just on the counter.
  • The composition of a good and high-quality oil should include only cream. A mixture of two types is allowed, but no more, that is, the composition consists of one, two ingredients. If you have more than two components - refuse such a purchase.
  • The fat content of the oil used to make the cheese cream is of great importance. The percentage of fat in oil should be at least 83%. Then the consistency of the cream mass will be good and it will be very easy to work with.
  • Also in the preparation of the cream, the color of the oil is important. If the oil is yellow, then the cream will be of such a shade. To prepare a snow-white cream, you need to choose a matte white oil.
  • Do not experiment with brands of oil, but take one in which you are 100% sure. Oil is not cheap, so the money will be more intact.
  • Bringing home the oil you need to store it correctly. If you prepare the cream immediately, then you can put the oil in the refrigerator. But if you bought a dairy product in advance, send it to the freezer.
  • Thaw the oil before cooking it is necessary gradually. First, remove it from the freezer to the refrigerator, and after a while, when the oil is malleable, thaw at room temperature.

How to level the cake with cream?

Having picked up the necessary recipe and made a cream for smoothing the cake that does not melt, it is also important to apply it correctly on the dessert surface, which a detailed master class will help to cope with.

    A little cream is placed in the center of the cake.

Many confectioners use cream cheese in butter to even out the cake, which has a relatively dense texture and excellent taste. If desired, you can make the coating even denser and stronger by adding crumbs from shortbread cookies to the cream, grinding it in a blender, sweet vanilla crackers or crushed leftover biscuit.

  • cream cheese - 400 g,
  • butter - 200 g,
  • powdered sugar - 2 tbsp. spoons or to taste.

  1. Beat butter at room temperature with powdered sugar at high speeds for about 2 minutes.
  2. Cheese is added and the ingredients are thoroughly mixed at a minimum mixer speed of approximately 30 seconds.
  3. Ready cream for leveling the cake is placed for several minutes in the refrigerator.

Cream Cheese Recipe in Butter

I will tell you a secret: the ratio of butter and cream / curd cheese in this cream can be absolutely anything, tailored to your tastes: from 1: 3 to 1: 1. In other words, from 100 gr. butter per 300 gr. cheese up to 200 gr. butter for 200 cheese, while regulating the sweetness of the cream by adding or reducing icing sugar.

Keep in mind that children, for example, do not really like the overly prevailing sour taste of cheese.

I tried a huge variety of different combinations, and I will give you the recipe for the cream that has become a “namber van” for me personally and for my customers.

Curd cake alignment cream - recipe

The ideal cream for leveling the cake, which is also suitable for the layer of cakes, can be made from cottage cheese. The latter should be soft, with minimal grit. For added tenderness, it is first interrupted by a blender until a creamy texture is obtained. Nothing prevents tinting the cream while driving in with a fat-soluble gel dye.

  • cottage cheese - 250 g
  • butter - 200 g,
  • icing sugar - 70 g
  • condensed milk - 70 g.

  1. At room temperature, curd and beat condensed milk with a blender.
  2. The softened oil is beaten with a mixer with powder until whitening.
  3. In portions, add cottage cheese with condensed milk to the oil and mix.
  4. If the curd cream for smoothing the cake is liquid, you can put it in the cold for a couple of minutes, and then apply it as intended.

  • icing sugar - 185 gr.
  • cream / curd cheese ( Cremette , Almette, Violet) - 225 gr.

If desired, instead of vanilla extract, you can add grated zest of 1 lemon, 1 lime, 1 orange and 1 mandarin to the cream and get a funky cream with a citrus flavor.


It must be of very good quality. And its fat content should be 82.5%. I prefer the oil manufacturer "Mille":

But sometimes I use Prostokvashino oil, also 82.5% fat:

Oil can be replaced with cream, the fat content of which should not be less than 33%.
Oil must be very soft and supple. To do this, they take it out of the refrigerator at least a couple of hours before making the cream.

An oil-based cream is used to align cakes and create cream decorations - since it is more stable.
When are creams used? They are needed to give lightness to the cream, a special airiness, the taste of cheese with cream is incredibly delicate, the cream melts in your mouth. I use it to layer cakes and toppings. With such a cream, the cake tastes easier.

Chocolate cream for smoothing the cake

Chocolate cream ganache for smoothing the cake turns out to be magnificent in texture, does not flow, perfectly lays on the surface of any dessert and at the same time pleases with an amazing taste.

  4. Beat cream cheese and powder until splendid.
  5. Combine the cheese base with ganache, stir the chocolate cream to smooth the cake until smooth.

Cream cheese

But this ingredient needs special attention. Since we need only curd soft cheese. No fused variations are suitable. For you, I specifically photographed the cheese that I most often buy for cheese cheese.

Now in the store you can find several variations of cream cheese curd. Personally, I really liked a few options. Among them: Philadelphia (soft, delicate, slightly sweet) and Almette (cottage cheese, tinted brackish) Hochland, Violette.
Another important condition to get a good cream is that you need a suitable temperature for this ingredient. Cheese should be cold and firm. It is advisable to get it from the refrigerator at the last moment. Only then will we achieve the effect of a weightless “cloud” cream.
