Re: Cream cheese for Frosting?

The German word is Frischkäse or Doppelrahm Frischkäse or Dänischer Frischkäse. Exact same thing as cream cheese. Migros even has an M-Budget version in 300 gram packs.

I tried that very recently, but sadly it's really not "just as good". Quite a different consistency and lacking in richness and flavour.

Maybe for baking use it might do the job - I never use it in that way, which I think is mainly an American thing, highlighted by the use of the word "frosting" which doesn't really exist in British baking vocabulary - but as a spread it doesn't come close to being equivalent.
I posted this on the other Cream Cheese thread.... the Migros Budget cream cheese is the best I have found by far in Switzerland. I work with cheese and I use a lot of cream cheese at my bagel bar, so I do know quite a bit about the subject!

Migros Budget brands are often very good quality, it's just that the packs tend to be larger with cheaper packaging. Their cream cheese has a slightly higher fat content than Philly, but feels lighter, fresher and has a great tang to it.
