Cream Cheese Frosting


    • 1/2 cup of butter (1 stick), room temperature
    • 8 oz of Philly cream cheese (1 package), room temperature
    • 2 - 3 cups of powdered sugar
    • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract


    1 With an electric mixer, mix the butter and cream cheese together, about 3 minutes on medium speed until very smooth. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl to ensure even mixing.
    2 Add the vanilla extract and mix. Slowly add the powdered sugar. Keep adding until you get to desired sweetness and thickness.
    3 Either spread on with a blunt knife or spatula, or spoon into a piping bag to decorate your cake or cupcake.

    • Adding a teaspoon of Chinese Five Spice is always great for exotic chocolate cakes.
    • Adding freshly ground ginger helps spice up a carrot cake.
    • Freshly ground chai spice or even the contents of a bag of earl grey tea are heady and aromatic.
    • The scrapings from a vanilla bean can be very sweet and heavenly for red velvet or dark chocolate cakes.
    • Freshly grated or dried, flaked coconut mixed in makes it perfect for a coconut cake.

    Prep time: 5 minutes
