cream cheese frosting

Cream cheese frosting

250 grams Cream Cheese

100 grams butter

2 cups Icing Sugar (Confectioners sugar, powdered sugar)

In a mixer, blend together the cream cheese and butter until smooth and creamy. Add the Icing sugar gradually and continue mixing until well blended.

This frosting is great on a variety of cakes. Add vanilla essence or paste for a vanilla flavour on cupcakes. Or for a zingy frosting for carrot cake, try adding a squeeze of lemon juice and a tsp of grated lemon zest. You could also add a 1/4 to 1/2 cup of cocoa to the icing sugar before sifting for a chocolate frosting.

    1. Hi Michael,
      I checked out your blog and I like! Mind you, it’s food… and that will always get my attention. :) Looking forward to reading more of it.

  1. This was the easiest yummiest frosting I’ve ever made. I added cocoa as my kids aren’t cream cheese fans but they loved it! and heaps left over – I hope it freezes ok as thats where the excess ended up!

  2. Thank you for saving my Cream Cheese Icing. I went online and got a recipe from another site – it was terrible. It had the same quantities for Cream Cheese & butter, but only said to use 1 tea spoon of icing sugar. Thank goodness I’ve added the 2 cups instead… what a difference. Cheers!
