I love cream cheese frosting, I love cheese and the addition of it gives the frosting a rich and slightly salty flavor which really helps make frosting less sweet than it usually is.
Cream Cheese Frosting
1 package cream cheese (8 oz), at room temperature
1 stick butter (8 tbsp), at room temperature
6 cups confectioners sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
This recipe makes enough frosting to fill, crumb coat, and decorate a two layer 8 inch cake or to frost two dozen cupcakes. To color the frosting I use gel color.
I love to eat! I've been baking since before I was a teenager and exploring more with cooking for the past decade. This section of the site is dedicated to my experiments in the kitchen.
