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.
