I want to make a rainbow birthday cake. The recipie I'm following uses a cream cheese based frosting:
- 600 g cream cheese
- 250 g soft butter
- 120 g powdered sugar
(The recipie is here, it is in German but all these rainbow cake recipies are very similar.)
Unfortunately last time the kids complained it was a bit too sour or tart. They might also psychologically object to the "cheese" in the cake. What can I do to reduce the acidity or cream cheese flavor of the frosting? I don't want to go with pure buttercream, it's too heavy and while the kids would enjoy it the adults will likely object.
Can I maybe replace some of the cream cheese with mascarpone? Or will that make the creme too soft?
