I am part of the cream cheese crowd.

You could try whipping some liverwurst or pate with some mayonnaise and gelatin for an odd twist, sort of a liverwurst mousse.

Here's the link...Recipe: Brian Boitano's Bacon Corn Muffins With Savory Cream Cheese Frosting

The recipe looks great to me, and I think "cornbread cupcakes" would work much better and have the same effect you're looking for.

Last night I was thinking about this and I think I would whip up a batch of pimento cheese, made using half cheddar and half cream cheese, until it was light and fluffy.

Great ideas. Boitanos cupcakes do sound yummy. That Liverwurst idea is also intriguing. Not sure what I'm going to do. I'll let you know. Thanks everyone.

Only two pages of posts...we are not even close to done with this subject.

Cream cheese, sour cream whipped together with some salsa added for color.

16oz cream cheese
1/2 lb bacon
1 can French's fried onions
3oz package dried porcini mushrooms, ground to powder
Dash worcestershire sauce or to taste
Dash hot sauce or to taste
Heavy cream for thinning

Allow cream cheese to soften to room temperature. Fry bacon until really crisp, remove from skillet and drain well on paper towels. Into a food processor, with standard blade, crumble bacon and add fried onions. Process until ground fine. In the bowl of a stand mixer, equipped with paddle, add softened cream cheese and mix on medium-high until smooth. Reduce speed to low and add bacon/fried onion mixture and mushroom powder. Mix until blended. Add worchestershire and hot sauce. If needed add heavy cream to thin until you get a frosting consistency.

You can all see where I'm going with this. Sort of a bacon and onion dip frosting. Its a base to work from. BTW, I just pulled it out of my head, so no TNT.

Wow, it's scary in there...

Actually it sounds really good.

Tough crowd. I'm still here.

What if we got away from the cheese concept. I could totally see that working but on the other hand, I'm not sure it's really what I'm going for with the lamb. Here's the lamb recipe I'm using. I've for a bag full of lamb shanks I'm carrying home on the train from the downtown butcher.

I would serve it with plain cornbread, polenta, mashed potatoes, couscous or a rice pilau.

I would save the layer cake idea for another time.
