Tips for spreading your cream cheese
There are many ways to spread your cream cheese on your board but my favorite way is to do it artfully. I use an icing spatula and add a dollop of cream cheese to the board and add slight pressure and pull down. I repeat this in rows across to board slightly overlapping. It’s easier than it looks when you have the right spatula.
