America's Test Kitchen made a pound cake using the brick form of cream cheese (softened). She said 6 oz, but it looked like she was dumping in the whole brick.

I happen to have a container of Raley's Soft Cream Cheese, but I'm worried that it might not be a good idea to use that product. Your thoughts?

Go for it. The worst that can happen is you'll have to throw it out!

I would assume that it would be okay. It's cream cheese and it's softened.

I've used cream cheese in quick breads in lieu of butter. It works well and lightens the recipe nicely.

I googled it. For baking, it said to always use the brick version when recipe calls for cream cheese. I think there are different "properties" in the spreadable soft cream cheese.

Soft cream cheese has air whipped into it. I don't know how much that will affect the results, if at all. Try it and let us now. And, good luck.

As you are representing a company that is supposedly known for its honesty, I am surprised you would use such means as posting here when advertising IS NOT ALLOWED.

Well, I made their cake yesterday. Licking the bowl was delicious, but the cake was awful. It's the first cake I've made that wound up in the garbage!
