Cream Cheese Frosting

Cream Cheese Frosting

I love to use this as a filling in chocolate cakes, as well as cakes that have been glazed with strawberry.  It’s a little soft to be used as an outer frosting for your cake, but if you add more powdered sugar, or mix it with vanilla buttercream, you can make it work.  Delicious!

1 8oz package cream cheese, softened
1 stick butter at room temp – 113 grams
4 cups confectioner’s sugar, unsifted is fine
1 tsp vanilla

Mix the butter, cream cheese and vanilla at medium speed.  Add confectioner’s sugar.  Blend until smooth.  Sometimes the consistency varies a little with the weather…add a little more sugar if you need to.

Double Batch-
Two 8 oz packages cream cheese
11/2 sticks butter, softened
8c. confectioner’s sugar
2 tsp vanilla
Blend as above.

Cream Cheese Frosting
Perfect in Carrot cake
