Hummingbird cake - advice needed

(6 Posts)

I've made a hummingbird cake (crushed pineapple and banana) for tomorrow. It has a cream cheese icing like carrot cake. Would I be better off holding off icing it until tomorrow or will it be ok if I ice it today?

It'll be fine if you do it today smile

Don't over beat the cream cheese as it goes thin sad

Ah yes east point, I've made that mistake before. Also, don't try to use low fat cheese spread, only full fat works <looks sadly at thighs>

The Leith's Baking Bible & How to Cook books are very thick & expensive but they have brilliant tips & explanations in them. <lessons learned a bit late>
