Other processing may be carried out. For example, cream has a tendency to produce oily globules called "feathering" when added to coffee.

I always chill beaters and copper bowl. Chilled heavy cream also. Cream cheese was room temp. Debated the sugar issuex or granulated and chose to stick to the recipe.
I beat the cream until it was almost like butter and placed it back in freezer while doing the rest. When I put it together I could see that it seemed somewhat 'loose' so decided to put it back in the freezer for another 15 min. The cake frosted fine although it is a very whippy frosting even after all the extra precautions. I wouldn't hesitate to just whip it up and throw it on a sheet cake but would take the extra time when doing a round cake.
The taste is incredible. I love it because it is not sugary sweet but sweet enough and complimented by the cream cheese. I agree that this would make an A-1 fruit dip!!! I absolutely love this and would be great with almond extract on a cherry cake.
This is definitely a keeper. Since I wanted to pipe the frosting onto cupcakes, and given some reviews indicated this frosting wasn't firm enough for that, I adjusted the sugar and cream to suit my needs. Once I had the frosting made I chilled it just long enough to make it of piping consistency.
This was a light, fluffy cream cheese frosting which was the perfect choice for "Red Velvet Cupcakes," also from this site. I used this on a yellow cake for my husband's birthday and HE even said the icing made the cake. You HAVE to be patient while you're whipping the cream because it can take a while, but you will know the cream is ready when it looks like Cool Whip.
Also, make sure to stick the beaters and the bowl I prefer a glass bowl in the freezer for about 15 minutes before you whip the heavy cream. Your cream cheese MUST be at room temperature or you will end up with lumps. This is amazing. I just frosted some pumpkin cupcakes with it and they are perfect.
I had absolutely no problem with runniness, and can imagine piping this. It isn't really stiff, but it could happen. I did as another reviewer suggested and whipped my cream in a separate bowl than the other stuff. I happen to have a copper bowl, which I put in the fridge to chill for maybe minutes first.
I also kept the cream cheese cold, and I think this is important. Just by nature of beating something like this you warm it up, so I took this straight from the fridge and used it. I also chilled that bowl. I whipped it for a good long time - at least five minutes. I took little samples of it because I thought I was done, but when I tasted it I crunched on grains of sugar. After more beating and careful folding, I was done.
This is amazing stuff. Just a little bite from the cream cheese, but otherwise light and fluffy with a wonderful vanilla flavor. What I don't know is how they will hold up overnight or for any length of time, so I'll post when I know that. Update: I made this on a Sunday night and took the cupcakes to work. One woman who ate one on Tuesday said it was the most amazing thing she had ever tasted and it was just wrong to moan and groan so much over the frosting.
Thought that was a pretty good review, and convinced me that the frosting held up for a couple of days! More Reviews. All three members continued to explore new musical ideas and partnerships, play concerts and record music for over four decades after ending Cream.
In , Cream were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and re-formed to perform at the induction ceremony. Bruce and Baker said in later interviews that they were, indeed, interested in touring as Cream.
At Clapton's request, Cream reunited for a series of four shows, on 2, 3, 5, and 6 May at the Royal Albert Hall in London, the venue of their final concerts in Tickets for all four shows sold out in under an hour. Inspired by the success of the reunion, the band agreed to an additional set of three shows at the Madison Square Garden in New York City, from 24—26 October In February , Cream received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of their contribution to, and influence upon, modern music.
On the day prior to the Grammy ceremony, Bruce made a public statement that more one-off performances of Cream had been planned: multiple dates in a few cities, similar to the Royal Albert Hall and Madison Square Garden shows. However, this story was refuted by both Clapton and Baker, first by Clapton in a Times of London article from April The article stated that when asked about Cream, Clapton said: "No. Not for me. We did it and it was fun. But life is too short.
I've got lots of other things I would rather do, including staying at home with my kids. The thing about that band was that it was all to do with its limits These comments were far more specific and explosive than Clapton's, as they were centred around his relationship with Jack Bruce. Ginger said, "When he's Dr. Jekyll, he's fine It's when he's Mr. Hyde that he's not. And I'm afraid he's still the same.
I tell you this — there won't ever be any more Cream gigs, because he did Mr. Hyde in New York last year. Oh, he shouted at me on stage, he turned his bass up so loud that he deafened me on the first gig. What he does is that he apologises and apologises, but I'm afraid, to do it on a Cream reunion gig, that was the end. He killed the magic, and New York was like It was just a get through the gig, get the money sort of deal.
I was absolutely amazed. I mean, he demonstrated why he got the sack from Graham Bond and why Cream didn't last very long on stage in New York.
I didn't want to do it in the first place simply because of how Jack was. I have worked with him several times since Cream, and I promised myself that I would never work with him again. When Eric first came up with the idea, I said no, and then he phoned me up and eventually convinced me to do it.
I was on my best behaviour and I did everything I could to make things go as smooth as possible, and I was really pleasant to Jack. Baker and Bruce appeared on stage in London when Baker was awarded a lifetime achievement award by legendary cymbal manufacturer Zildjian.
It was later revealed that the potential performance was to be November in London as a tribute to Ahmet Ertegun. The band decided against it and this was confirmed by Bruce in a letter to the editor of the Jack Bruce fanzine, The Cuicoland Express , dated 26 September Dear Marc, We were going to do this tribute concert for Ahmet when it was to be at the Royal Albert Hall but decided to pass when it was moved to the O2 Arena and seemed to be becoming overly commercial.
