    Absolutely perfect for piping! Only added 2 tsp of Chinese ground ginger to go with my five spice pineapple mini cupcakes. Had more than enough to decorate. Thanks for a great recipe!!

    Hi, You know I'm not sure how long it could stay out as Ive always just cut a slice off and then put back the rest in the fridge. But I would say at least an hour??... Depending on the temp. of course. I havent tried the meringue powder with cream cheese yet. That is a great idea. I have used it with my chocolate frosting though..

    Hi! Love the idea of using the "cold" cream cheese. I have done a carrot wedding cake before and had to use butter cream for fear it would "melt" if I used cream cheese. How long can this icing stay out at room temperature? Have you tried "stabilizing" with meringue powder? Did it make a difference? Thanks!!!!!

    Hi! I hadnt either but it does make a difference. It keeps it from being too soft for spreading and piping otherwise.

    I'd never heard of using "cold" cream cheese frosting. I have a recipe my mom gave me for pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting, but it calls for it to be room temp. Isn't it tough to mix with it being cold? I'm not that much of a baker, I'm more of a cooker (dinner that is) It sounds interesting to try and I have all the ingredients to do it.
